Leaving a Wild Legacy

A Planned Giving Newsletter from Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation

FEB 2024

In this issue of our Planned Giving newsletter, we share the importance of your will reflecting the changes that happen in your life, and we offer five easy steps to help you prepare for tax season.

I am also honored to introduce Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation’s (TPWF) new Philanthropy and Stewardship Officer, Amy Allen. With over three decades of planned giving experience in Texas, Amy will use her wealth of expertise to help steward TPWF donors and manage the planned giving program. According to Amy, “I find my joy in connecting and talking with people and sharing good things about how they can give back in ways that are meaningful to them.” As she embarks on this exciting next stage of her career, TPWF looks forward to the insights and perspective Amy adds to our planned giving efforts. 

Thank you for your continued support,

Pristine Watershed Protected with Honey Creek Land Acquisition

Thanks to the generosity of many private donors and foundations, 515 acres have been added to the Honey Creek State Natural Area in Central Texas.

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department partnered with TPWF, The Nature Conservancy in Texas, and landowners Ronnie and Terry Urbanczyk to protect the Honey Creek watershed and wildlife habitat in a rapidly growing area near San Antonio in the Texas Hill Country. The $25 million purchase was made possible by the Land and Water Conservation Fund, state appropriations for land acquisitions, and private donationss.

Honey Creek is considered a pristine stream that supports a healthy and diverse ecosystem and meets an exceptional aquatic life-use category based on samples of water quality, periphyton levels, and aquatic life taken by researchers at Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

This is truly a win for our state's wildlife, habitat, and natural resources.
