Interpreting Parks

This is Passport to Texas

There’s no doubt Texans love their state parks. Our state park guide, Bryan Frazier, says for anyone wishing to develop an even deeper appreciation of these specials places—think: interpretive park tours.

You know, the expertise our park interpretive staff has in Texas is second to none. They know the wildlife, the geology, the history, the culture.

And last year we had almost 700-thousand people that enjoyed some sort of interpretive tour in our state parks. Those nature hikes, and birding tours, and history and culture presentations that the park rangers are able to do at the parks. People love that.

That’s why they go there, is to not just to experience and enjoy the outdoors, but to learn about what makes Texas so unique and such a special place for so many people. And those interpretive programs give people that chance. And you can call and set those up and a lot of times, they’re regularly scheduled anyway.

So whether you’re in the Panhandle or the Gulf Coast, there’s so much to know and learn about the beauty and the rich, rich history of our state parks.

Thanks, Bryan.
