Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

Thanks to recent appropriations by the Texas Legislature, the first major infusion of new staffing for state parks in many years is underway.

Chief Operating Officer, Scott Boruff says Parks and Wildlife received the funds on September first, and many new hires are already hard at work.

And visitors to state parks will see many improvements once the parks are fully staffed.

Well, they’re going to see more faces there to give them a hand with what they need, in terms of getting them checked in and getting them situated in their sites appropriately and comfortably.

They’re going to have more resources to go to when they have questions. They’re going to have more opportunities to be exposed to the natural resource implications of state parks.

There will be folks there to do interpretive programs, and tell them what’s going on in state parks. Both the cultural and natural resource side of the parks. We’ll have better opportunities for interpretation to the public.

They will also see improvements to the capital infrastructure there – the restrooms will be nicer, the picnic tables will be a little newer, building will have screens on them and painted, and stuff like that.
