Celebrating and Protecting Our National Parks in the Lone Star State
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. As the National Park Service moves into its second century of existence beginning 2016, Texans are focused on celebrating the 13 spectacular national parks of the Lone Star State.
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. Texas Pride provides a quick tour of the 13 national park sites in Texas, and inspiration for each of us to help protect our heritage for our children and grandchildren.
