State Park Ornament

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

The 2009 commemorative State Park Christmas ornament is as big as Texas—at least in spirit—and is available through the end of the month.

Each year it showcases something different that is particularly unique to what you can find when you go and visit our state parks.

Bryan Frazier is promotions coordinator for state parks. The newest ornament is gold-plated, diamond shaped, and has a fly rod gracefully arching over the top.

There’s a ring-tailed cat on the inside, there’s the windmill that’s at Brazos Bend State Park, there’s a magnolia flower, and a desert big horn sheep, and part of the mountain range of Big Bend Ranch in there.

And that’s only half of what’s included in this lovely, delicate decoration. If you’ve been collecting these ornaments, be advised you only have until the end of the month to get yours.

They’re $5.50 plus tax, and you can order them from our central reservation system. And a special promotion is going to happen starting December first and runs through December thirty-first, where if you buy a state park pass gift certificate you get the ornament for free.

There is also a nominal fee for shipping and handling.

We’ll tell you about the special promotion tomorrow.

Until then, go to for details on how to get your 2009 commemorative State Park Christmas ornament.

That’s our show… For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
