Best State Department

Texas Parks & Wildlife Department

Both this paper and the daily have recently run stories about "Texas parks in crisis," but what's remarkable is how good a state park system we do have, considering what kind of state government we have. From right here in the Austin city limits to the far corners of the state, TPWD lets everyone touch a bit of the real Texas.
