Welcome to Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine

Keep Texas Wild

Dear Educators,

We are excited to present to you "Keep Texas Wild" – a magazine section for kids.

Our kid-friendly, four-page sections include fun facts presented with a lively writing style, eye-popping photos and a creative, whimsical design. The topics are Texas- specific, with special attention to conservation issues.

"Keep Texas Wild" includes hands-on activities that cross the spectrum of curriculum (including art, math, science and social studies) and a call to action that encourages students to get outdoors and get involved.

"Keep Texas Wild" is available in printable PDF format:
