We want to thank everyone who came out this week to celebrate the launch of our Far West Texas Wildlife Trail map in Fort Davis and El Paso! 

A special thanks to everyone who worked hard to bring this project to fruition--the members of our map committee (volunteers from all over the region); site nominees, managers and landowners; map sponsors and donors, friends who came to the events and hosted information tables (Friends of Big Bend National Park, McDonald Observatory, Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center, Tierra Grande Chapter of Texas Master Naturalists, The Nature Conservancy).  Also HUGE thanks to those who worked on the events themselves--Carol Edwards, the Tierra Grande Chapter of Texas Master Naturalists and Friends of Davis Mountains State Park, Linda Hedges, David Bischofhausen, Bernie Sargent, Rebecca Diaz, Hyatt Place El Paso Airport, Keystone Heritage Park, Scott Jordan and our friends of the Texas Pecos Trail, Mercer Black, Rob McCorkle, and especially Shelly Plante and the folks at TPWD.  Y'all are great!!  Thank you!

You can view the map online here. 

Because of state budget cuts, we need to revise our distribution of the map to the public.  Please check our main website early next month for a list of regional vendors who will be offering the map for sale!
