Since 1997, Texans for State Parks has been the only Texas-wide grassroots non-profit organization devoting all of its efforts to advocate the support of our Texas State Parks system, including state historic sites and state natural areas. Our members are individuals, organizations, businesses, and “Friends” groups dedicated to specific state parks.
State parks are a reservoir of Texas’ natural, historic, and cultural heritage providing affordable, accessible recreation across the state. Besides recreation the parks are an economic engine for neighboring communities, generating revenue and jobs as well as being an important link in the outdoor education for the visitors.
Texans for State Park work to assure adequate funding to maintain, interpret, and expand the Texas State Parks system. Together we testify before committees handling park issues and funding at the Texas legislature, visit legislators to educate them about the state parks, inform the public about state park issues, and provide networking opportunities for Friends groups.
Our goals are to be a united, statewide advocate for the Texas State Parks, be an informative resource for state park issues, and to educate the public and elected officials about the state parks and their issues. We support stable and adequate funding to maintain and expand the state parks system and are a partner with allied groups. Our organization also works to provide input to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Commission.
