Description

Edits on this data began on June of 2011 and continue to be updated regularly. The goal of the 2010 Land and Water Plan is to guide TPWD in conserving the state's natural and historic heritage and in providing public access to the outdoors. It serves as a tactical document that guides planning, operational, and budget decisions. The Plan is arranged into four goals. The goals and objectives are intended to promote stewardship on public and private lands and waters; protect our unique natural and cultural resources; encourage partnerships with all stakeholders; utilize science as the backbone of decision-making; promote participation in the outdoors; instill appreciation of nature in our citizens, young and old; and promote business approaches that leverage industry standards and best practices to support our mission. Data compiled and created by: TPWD | Texas State Parks Division | Natural Resources Program | Planning & Geospatial Resources Section, June 2011 - February 2012
