Physicians, Nurses & Social workers marched on the Tornillo, TX border crossing, the site of one of the many “Tent Cities” being constructed to house immigrant children & families. They marched to protest the separation and called for immediate reunification of the thousands of currently separated children. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Good afternoon everyone! Be wary of turtles out in the this time of year. Many turtles are nesting. Please keep a respectable distance of 20ft. #txstateparks #turtle#layingeggs

Hiking @seminolecanyonstatepark with @shea.lip! Lots of exposed trails and hotter temps right now, but you have a chance of seeing some of North America's oldest rock art. Down the highway you'll find @amistadnps where you'll have a chance of cooling off! 🏊🏼 .

Ranger Nikki found this #raccoon in one of the park dumpsters. They are opportunistic eaters, so dumpsters make a great #buffet. We got the little guy out so he could be on his way. #trashpanda #betteroutside #txstateparks

Early sunset light on the Enchanted Rock Dome. One of the best parts of evening events is the waiting and watching as the light shifts across this magnificent behemoth. Then the sky goes dark and millions upon millions of stars pop out one by one until the sky is full. The entire show takes just a few hours from the golden hour until astronomical dusk and all of it is beautiful and breathtaking.

If there's water or even just a puddle, he'll fish. 😆🎣👫 this was such a fun find on our #hike; we were standing on the creek bed and water ran deep underneath all the rocks. Fish are so resilient because there were some lil peeps thriving in there! #rockinadventures #txstateparks #getoutside #optoutside #createyourtrail #builtforplay #texas #texasfishing #fishing #fishingislife #weekendadventures #weekendvibes #511tactical

Pictures from June 15th groundbreaking ceremony for the new park visitor center at Franklin Mountains State Park. 🚧🚧 “Constructing a visitor center within the nation’s largest urban wilderness park has been a central goal for many years and we are getting closer to accomplishing it,” says Park Superintendent Cesar Mendez. This new facility will be a great gift to Franklin Mountains State Park and the local community. The new visitor center will be located in the park’s Tom Mays Unit and will include exhibits covering the natural and cultural history of the mountains and the park, as well as orientation on the park’s trails, facilities and activities for park visitors. #infrastructureteam #franklinmountainsstatepark #buildingbetteroutside #txstateparks #groundbreakingceremony #tpwd #betteroutside

The Lighthouse was absolutely lit on this morning! 🙌🏻 While I was playing around, the 5am start time caught up to her and no joke, I caught her cat napping 😂 The Lighthouse is iconic, it stands tall in the canyon and is easily one of my favorite locations we’ve visited so far this year. Texas is incredibly diverse.

It’s been almost a week since I was laying on the falls gazing at the stars with good friends and hoping a rattlesnake wasn’t going to curl up next to me. Milky Way shooting is pretty fun after all, even when it comes with a lecture from the park ranger. .

With the rains, I had Brazos Bend all to myself yesterday. The alligators were out but not photogenic. When the gators don’t cooperate, I become a reluctant birder. So, here is a tour of birds from my 3-hour hike.
(1) Anhinga
(2) Black-bellied whistling ducks
(3) Common gallinule
(4) Green heron
(5) Little blue heron
(6) Yellow-crowned night heron
(7) Great egret
(8) Juvenile egret, I think

Damselfly, not sure which kind, near the Paluxy River in Dinosaur Valley State Park. Damselflies, suborder Zygoptera in the order Odonata, are similar to dragonflies but are a smaller, slimmer odonatan suborder. They are found on every continent except Antarctica

A few things: • Happy official first day of #summer! We live in #texas, so it's been summer since basically last summer. ☀️😂 • It has been a heck of a week for this little Rock family, but we just made tacos for dinner complete with #homemade salsa to cope. We're better now. ❤️ • We caught this fish last weekend, and we're still not 100% sure what it is! Hey, @texasparkswildlife, we'd love your help! • These @buff_usa stripping guards ARE FREAKING LIFE. No burning your skin, a constantly clean line. @buff_usa, you've outdone yourself. • We hope, no matter how the day has been for you, that you have a nice meal with someone for whom you care deeply. And if that means you have dinner with your cat at home, that's good stuff, too. 👫🐱💜 -Shannon, Jon, and Cappy 🐱 #happysummersolstice #summersolstice #testedtough #buffofficial #livemorenow

Since Huntsville State Park has such a long history, we have decided to begin posting old pictures of the park every Thursday for "Throwback Thursday!" If you have any pictures you would like to submit send them to ted.pick@tpwd.texas.gov

For today's Throwback Thursday is the groundbreaking of Lake Raven from July 14th, 1955. Did you know all lakes in Texas except for Caddo Lake are man-made? Notice how the area has changed in the last 60 years! ~ Will
