The park is a charter member of the Blanco, Texas Chamber of Commerce program recognizing individuals and businesses applying new fixtures and adapting old ones to protect night skies.  The park has joined with the Hill Country Alliance to bring attention to night sky resources.  Both units of the park have been evaluated for night lighting and recommendations are being incorporated into facility management work plans.  The interpretive branch expects to reinstitute night sky programming in 2014.
