Devils River is considered to be one of the most
pristine rivers in the Southwest. It flows for more than 90 miles through some
of the most remote and rugged terrain in Texas. For more than three decades
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) has prioritized the Devils for
ecological research, biological monitoring and natural and cultural resources
In 2011, TPWF led efforts to raise funds for an
18,000-acre tract with 10 miles of river frontage. A paddler camp and river
takeout at the Dan Allen Hughes Unit of the Devils River State Natural Area now
welcomes visitors by permit to enjoy one of the most beautiful places in Texas.
Since 2011, with TPWF support, TPWD has expanded
investments in scientific research to better understand the river. Partnerships
with nonprofits like TPWF, The Nature Conservancy and the Devils River
Conservancy will ensure the Devils will run clean and clear for future
generations of wildlife, and people.
