This is Passport to Texas

Looking for an informative summer read? Mike Cox, discusses an article that details Texas Parks and Wildlife’s fifty most significant milestones for the July issue of TPW magazine.

04 – I think we could have done probably 25 more, maybe a hundred more.

Cox, a TPW spokesman, says milestones range from creation of the department in 1963… to the Connally Bonds that allowed the purchase of land for parks… to desert bighorn sheep restoration… to creation of the great coastal birding trail… to the Lone Star Land Stewards Awards Program and more.

16 – The department has really done a lot of good things, and I think everyone is looking forward to what the department can do in the next half century for the people of Texas.

And what might the next fifty years bring?

18 – Hopefully we’ll have a big impact on water… not only quality, but the availability of water… especially as we’re in the middle of a horrible drought. I think that’s something that we’ll look back on 50 years from now and say: ‘Whew – it’s a good thing that agencies like Texas Parks and Wildlife were involved in programs like that to help try to turn things around.’

The July issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine with Mix Cox article on TPW’s 50 Milestones is on newsstands now.
