Wild Times July 2017

Thank You for 25 Years of Support

Since 1991, Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation (TPWF) has raised more than $170 million in private philanthropy to ensure that all Texans can enjoy the wild things and wild places of Texas, today and for generations to come. In 2016, we celebrated our 25th anniversary, and in our just-published annual report, we reflect on the achievements of the past while looking to the future. We know it would not have been possible without you, and we invite you to read more about what we have accomplished together. Thank you for 25 wonderful years, and here’s to the next 25!


TPWF Awarded Conservation Innovation Grant

TPWF has been recognized for its innovative approach to conservation by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). NRCS has awarded a highly competitive Conservation Innovation Grant to TPWF, which will enhance conservation of the Texas Gulf Coast by helping deploy the new Gulf Coast Conservation Loan Fund.

The fund will support efforts to maximize Deepwater Horizon oil spill mitigation dollars by providing interim financing for time-sensitive land conservation projects along the Texas Gulf Coast. It’s all part of a broader effort by TPWF to raise awareness of the importance of private investment and nonprofit partnerships in maximizing available funding.


New License Plate Supports Texas River Conservation

If you love Texas rivers and want to help take care of them, show what drives you with a new river conservation license plate! The new plate supports Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Conserving Texas Rivers Initiative, which brings together partners and local landowners to conserve their hometown rivers.

Since 2010, more than ten thousand acres of upland, riparian, and instream habitats have been restored, supporting conservation of the Blanco, Brazos, Colorado, Devils, Llano, Nueces, and Pedernales rivers. It has also established 19 public access areas on 10 rivers, providing recreation opportunities on more than 150 miles of Texas rivers. Find out how you can get a license plate.


Texas Parks and Wildlife Podcast: Hiking across Texas

A few years back, Dave Roberts decided to retire and enjoy more of the natural world around him. So he took a hike. And then another. And, then, in his early 70s, he decided to literally hike across Texas. Listen to the Texas Parks and Wildlife podcast and enjoy the journey.
