In Super, Natural Christians: How We Should Love Nature, Dr. Sallie McFague writes, “We will not save what we do not love, and we cannot love what we do not know.” Our Texas state parks system helps people across the state get to know nature and come to love the rocks, streams, lakes, trees, beaches and wetlands of this beautiful piece of earth we call Texas. Experiencing and appreciating the gifts of nature encourages us to care for God's creation.
We are partnering with the Keep Texas Parks Open initiative to bring a series of educational programs to communities around the state. At these town halls, we'll focus on the Texas state parks system, how it might be impacted by budget cuts, and how we can help protect our parks for future generations.
The town halls in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio will include a religious leader as part of the panel presentation. For a full list of all town hall locations and dates, click here.
