Breaking News:

Everything’s bigger in Texas” – and that includes sharing the stories of Texas, through the fifteen National Parks & Trails across the Lone Star State. Each year the national parks of Texas welcome 5.5 million visitors. With the new World Heritage designation of the San Antonio Missions and the new installation of Waco Mammoth as a national monument, the number of visitors and their economic contributions to Texas will grow exponentially.

NPCA opened the Texas Regional office in 2007. We support the efforts of our 48,000 members, partners and friends. Together, we protect more than 1.2 million acres of land, and preserve countless natural and cultural treasures of our state. By increasing the connection between Texans and their National Parks, we work to develop park advocates: ready to connect, protect and restore our national parks for future generations.

Since opening our doors, the Texas Regional Office has had great success in safeguarding a threatened view shed in Fort Davis National Historic Site, planting 13,000 long leaf pine trees as part of habitat restoration in Big Thicket National Preserve, securing a World Heritage Nomination for San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, and being lead facilitator for the effort to create a new park unit, the Lone Star Coastal National Recreation Area, along the Upper Texas Gulf Coast.

We’re planning new adventures for 2016 in celebration of the National Park System’s 100th anniversary. Stay tuned for events in your area – we’d be glad to have y’all join in the fun!
