TPWD Expo: New This Year

Friday, September 7th, 2007

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

Next month Texas Parks and Wildlife headquarters in Austin will be transformed into an outdoor enthusiast’s playground during Texas Parks and Wildlife Expo.

Expo is a festival of the great outdoors. It’s a little bit of everything that you can do from fishing and shooting to camping, kayaking, rock climbing and mountain biking…and it’s just a great, great family event.

Ernie Gammage, Expo Director.

Expo is held the first weekend in October, Saturday and Sunday – open nine to five – and it’s free.

Gammage recommends using Expo as a springboard to outdoor activities in Texas.

The idea is to come to Expo and find your passion. What are those things that really seem to be fun to you? And then go out and explore them.

And there’s plenty to explore at Expo.

Lots of new, fun activities at Expo this year, including: geocahing…a family camping demo site….there’s some information about invasive species, which is a growing problem in the state of Texas. And country star, Kevin Fowler, will be visiting with us on Sunday.

When you visit Expo you can also enjoy Sea World’s Amazing Animals, the Birds of Prey show, and activities for the entire family; remember, getting children outdoors is one of the most important things we can do for them.
