Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

Texas’ State Park system is getting a much needed shot in the arm thanks to appropriations by the Texas Legislature this past session.

The legislature came through for us this session, and did give us some additional money which will allow us to fund roughly a couple hundred new positions. It will give us some new capital money major repairs at state parks, and will allow us to get our state parks back into shape, and have staff there to take care of folks when they come in.

Chief Operating Officer, Scott Boruff, and his teams are working tirelessly to identify and hire qualified applicants.

There’s a broad range of positions that are going to be added to the state parks. I think the bulk of the positions will be park rangers and park interpreters and folks that interface directly with the public.

Boruff says the addition of more law enforcement positions will make the parks even safer for visitors. In addition, qualified applicants are being sought to work behind the scenes, too.

There will be business type folks that are helping us take care of the financial resources of the park. So, there will be additional budget analysts and people like that. I think you will see better business practices as a result of this new money.
