Learn about State Park funding

Recommended Posts

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, the Houston Parks Board is partnering with a broad-based Texas Parks Coalition to finally end that diversion and fund the parks system at a greater level.

We’re bringing down Brian Trusty, Executive Director for Texas Audubon, to discuss this issue on March 5 at 6:30 at the United Way. And after he presents, we’ll ask everyone to send a letter to their state representative and senator asking that dollars due the parks system go back to the parks.
