TPWD Expo: Finding Your Passion

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

You are days away from the best outdoor festival around – Texas Parks and Wildlife Expo, at Parks and Wildlife headquarters in Austin.

Expo is held the first weekend in October, held from nine to five and it’s free.

Expo Director, Ernie Gammage, says attendees are bound to find an outdoor activity to capture their imaginations.

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.

Your outdoor adventures needn’t end with Expo.

At almost every activity, a visitor can pick up what we call the 101 Guides, which is a very basic little brochure about that next step. Are there fishing clubs? Are there magazines? Where can I find information on the web or in the library? Where are places to go? And you can pick all of that up at Expo.

Bring the family, but leave skateboards, bikes, Rollerblades and your pet at home. Expo is best experienced on foot, and without Fido.

If you and your family are looking for something to do that can open a whole new world of the outdoors and togetherness for you – come on down to the Expo.
