Keeping Texas Wild

Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that advances Texas’ proud outdoor traditions through meaningful, high-impact programs, partnerships, and a wide range of projects that conserve and enhance our state’s lands, waters, and wildlife. Our vision is for all Texans to have access to the wild things and wild places in our state, both now and for generations to come.

Wild Things and Wild Places

For more than 30 years, Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation has been keeping Texas wild. We have raised and invested more than $250 million to advance Texas’ proud outdoor traditions and conserve and enhance our lands, waters, and wildlife.

Thriving native grasslands with blooming wildflowers across Texas that are critical to the survival of migrating monarch butterflies, native bees, and quail populations. These are a few of the many wild things and wild places that are the enduring and ongoing work of TPWF and our supporters and partners.

TPWF is the official nonprofit partner of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. We also partner with dozens of other organizations and corporations across the state.

Texas is vast, and vast is the TPWF mission.
