This educational film from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) profiles the department’s work in providing outdoor recreation, historic preservation, and natural area conservation by reviewing many of the state parks, historic sites, and natural areas maintained by TPWD. The natural beauty, historic value, and recreational uses of parks and sites such as the San Jacinto Monument and Battleground, Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Davis Mountains State Park, Pedernales Falls State Park, Monahans Sandhills State Park, Washington-on-the-Brazos State Park, Lyndon B. Johnson State Park, and Caddo Lake State Park are discussed, among many others. Texas Parks and Wildlife is working to ensure that these resources will be available in the future for generations of Texans to come!
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department provides outdoor recreational opportunities by managing and protecting wildlife and wildlife habitat and acquiring and managing parklands and historic areas. It has inherited the functions of many state entities created to protect Texas' natural resources. In 1895 the legislature created the Fish and Oyster Commission to regulate fishing. The Game Department was added to the commission in 1907. The State Parks Board was created as a separate entity in 1923. In the 1930s, projects of the federal Civilian Conservation Corps added substantially to the state's parklands. In 1951, the term oyster was dropped from the wildlife agency's name, and in 1963, the State Parks Board and the Game and Fish Commission were merged to form the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department under the administration of Governor John B. Connally. The legislature placed authority for managing fish and wildlife resources in all Texas counties with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department when it passed the Wildlife Conservation Act in 1983. Previously, commissioners courts had set game and fish laws in many counties, and other counties had veto power over department regulations. Currently, TPWD operates 114 state parks and historical sites, 51 wildlife management areas, and eight fish hatcheries.
