Gerald R. Ford was the only U.S. president to work as a park ranger.
Texas is huge in both territory and history, and it’s fitting that it should be home to some of America’s finest national parks. NPCA’s Texas Regional Office opened in 2007 and is working with our 38,000 members in Texas and many partners and friends to advocate for the preservation of the lone star state's 13 diverse and awe-inspiring national park sites. The national parks of Texas welcome 5.5 million visitors each year. Texans and other visitors come to learn about the proud history of their state and experience the amazing wildlife, cultural treasures, and natural beauty the parks protect.
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, preparing a bid for a World Heritage Nomination for San Antonio National Historical Park, and leading the effort to create a new park unit, the Lone Star Coastal National Recreation Area, along the Upper Texas Gulf Coast.
