Texas Outdoor Family Texas Parks and Wildlife

The Texas Outdoor Family (TOF) is a Texas Parks and Wildlife program created to address a growing issue in today’s urban societies: a great number of families who are interested in spending time together in the outdoors lack the necessary skills to take an overnight camping trip and/or participate in outdoor recreation activities. Texas Outdoor Family introduces families to camping overnight in a state park and teaches them basic skills such as setting up and breaking down camp, Dutch oven and campfire cooking, fishing, paddling, hiking, orienteering, geocaching and more. Texas Outdoor Family could not function without the generous help and support of those committed to connecting families to the outdoors. Tax deductible contributions are now being accepted and will directly help introduce families to the outdoors, and every $75 contribution supports another family’s participation. Your support is greatly appreciated and will be put to good use! COMMENT GUIDELINES You are encouraged to share your thoughts as they relate to the topic being discussed.
