Event Details

Description

State parks are an important part of our regional park system, but for years, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has been underfunded and dollars meant for the parks system have been diverted to balance our state budget.

This year, we're partnering with a broad-based Texas Parks Coalition to finally end that diversion and fund the parks system at a greater level.

Join us to hear from Brian Trusty of Texas Audubon about the role of state park funding for the local parks grant program and why every conservationist should get involved this year.
