Texans for State Parks, incorporated in November 1997 was the first statewide, not-for-profit organization formed to work exclusively in support of the preservation and enhancement of the state parks, state historic sites, and state natural areas of Texas.
Members include a diverse set of interests (campers, hikers, birders, bicyclists, rock climbers, equestrians, RV owners, swimmers, and canoeists to name a few) with a common concern for the well-being of the state park system.
Texas State Parks offers two grant programs for the benefit of State Parks. The Development grants program encourages the development and growth of State Park Friends groups who help protect and maintain our State Parks.
