Historical Note

Established by the Fifty-eighth Legislature in 1963, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department merged the operations of the State Parks Board and the Texas Game and Fish Commission. Administered by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission, the department comprises six divisions: Fisheries, Wildlife, Parks, Resource Protection, Law Enforcement, and Administrative Services. Since 1967, it has been acquiring land, totaling approximately 433,000 acres that includes 129 parks and recreation sites. In addition to developing and maintaining parklands, the department is responsible for protecting the fish population in major reservoirs, rivers, streams, and 370 miles of the Texas coastline, among other endeavors to safeguard fish and wildlife resources.
