Nurturing the next generation of conservation leaders is the goal of Stewards of the Wild, TPWF’s young professionals program. With chapters across the state, the program provides opportunities for future conservation leaders from diverse backgrounds to participate in outdoor experiences such as camping, hiking, fishing and hunting; increase knowledge about public land access; interact with conservation professionals; and actively participate in the conservation of our wild things and wild places.
For more than 35 years, Texas Parks and Wildlife’s Toyota ShareLunker Program has partnered with anglers to enhance bass fishing in Texas by encouraging anglers who have caught trophy-sized largemouth bass to share their catch with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The fish are spawned, and lunker offspring are used for brood stock for future fish stocking efforts.
TPWF is raising $9 million to bring Palo Pinto Mountains State Park to life and open the first new state park in North Texas in 25 years. Palo Pinto Mountains State Park is located on 4,871 acres of scenic, undeveloped land approximately 75 miles west of Fort Worth. With incredible recreational opportunities and ample open space, the new park will be a beloved outdoor destination for many generations to come.
