Volunteering at Texas Parks and Wildlife

Friday, May 6th, 2011

This is Passport to Texas

Texas Parks and Wildlife is lucky to have a large group of active, enthusiastic volunteers.

15—Our volunteers tell us that they volunteer because they support Texas Parks and Wildlife’s mission, which is to manage and conserve our natural and cultural resources. There are lots of things to do all over the state, because we are a state agency…and being outdoors is fun!

Former Education and Outreach director for Texas Parks and Wildlife, Ernie Gammage says if you ever thought about volunteering for the agency, now is the time.

10—Volunteers have always been an integral part of the programming of Texas parks and Wildlife. And, with what’s going on right now with the state, they’re becoming even more important.

To find volunteer opportunities, go to the Texas Parks and Wildlife website, and at the top, you’ll see a link that says “get involved.” Click that, and you’re on your way.

And if you need a little encouragement to get you started, take it from Ernie Gammage:

06—You know, the outdoors is just about the greatest place in the world to be, and it’s the cure for what ails you.

Again, you can find volunteer opportunities on the Texas Parks and Wildlife website. Just click on the get involved link.

That’s our show for today… we produce our series at Block House studios in Austin, Texas, and Joel Block engineers our program….for Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
