Texas Parks and Wildlife Expo, 1

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program

Each October, Texas Parks and Wildlife HQ in Austin gets an extreme makeover when it’s transformed into EXPO, a 35-acre playground in the Great Outdoors.

Expo is a great opportunity for Texans to learn all about the things that they can do in the great Texas outdoors, and it’s free.

Ernie Gammage is Expo’s Director.

Texas is really blessed with opportunities for recreation in the outdoors. Things like camping, hunting, fishing, rock climbing, kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, all of these things you can do in this great state—in a lot of different kinds of habitat. And, if you come to the Wildlife Expo and don’t know how to do these things, you can learn and actually do them.

Parks and Wildlife Expo is October 4th and 5th in Austin. You can go to the agency’s website and click on the Expo link to start planning your visit.

Come early stay late, because if you came all weekend you still wouldn’t get to do everything. You can paddle a kayak, you can rock climb, you can learn all about conservation, you can see wild animal shows…it is so much fun.

That’s our show… we receive support from the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration program… working to increase fishing, hunting, shooting and boating opportunities in Texas.
