Year Accomplished:

The park has set a goal to increase non-personal interpretive opportunities throughout both units of the national historical park.  The interpretive team has created and installed twelve new wayside exhibits on the LBJ Ranch and the Johnson City units.  WNPA has partnered with the park to create a souvenir CD/DVD  package that will include an updated audio driving tour of the LBJ Ranch as well as professional photographs and historic videos made during the presidential years, 1963-1969.  The park is creating four new exhibits for the airplane hangar visitor center and adding a "GPS Ranger" self-guiding walking tour to the opportunities in Johnson City.  The park has also teamed up with Texas State University to create Spanish and German language versions of the park brochure and tour guides.
