New TPWF Membership program launches this month!
There are many challenges that threaten the wild things and wild places in Texas. Land fragmentation, loss of open space, pressures on water supply and habitat are just a few of the issues affecting the lands and waters of Texas.

TPWF is working to broaden the base of support for conservation projects across the state. That’s why we’re launching a new membership program this month, with a goal of involving even more Texans in our conservation mission. If you want to ensure that every Texan, now and in the future, can enjoy, explore, and be inspired by the wild things and wild places in Texas, join TPWF as a member today.

Declining quail populations across Texas and the U.S. have puzzled scientists for decades. Here in Texas, blue quail haven’t been seen in the Rolling Plains for years. Scientists are now experimenting with translocation as a way to jump start quail populations by moving birds from one area of the state to the other. Recently, several dozen blue quail captured near San Angelo were released at the Matador Wildlife Management Area near the bottom of the Panhandle.

Boating and fishing season in high gear!
Thanks to recent rains in many parts of the state, some lakes are filling back up and are ready for a busy boating and fishing season. This week marks National Safe Boating Week and it’s a good time to review helpful safety tips. In early June, celebrate National Fishing and Boating Week. Saturday, June 6, is free fishing day and you can fish anywhere in Texas without a fishing license. Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation funding supports recreational access to public water bodies all over the state.
