There’s a large state natural area north of town that’s being prepared for the public and on Tuesday I got to take a tour.
While Government Canyon is more than four times its size, the Albert and Bessie Kronkosky State Natural Area is still pretty huge: 3,757 acres.
James Rice is the superintendent, and at this point the only employee of Kronkosky, which is seven miles west of Boerne in a particularly hilly stretch of Hwy. 46.
“Albert and Bessie Kronkosky started buying up this property in 1946 and they wanted to preserve it,” Rice said.
