Communications Division

The Communications Division manages internal and external communication, marketing, education and outreach. A coordinated communications strategy based on priority projects and initiatives is developed and implemented each year. The division's primary responsibility is to increase awareness of the importance of conserving the natural and cultural resources of Texas, increase participation in outdoor recreational activities and encourage safe, legal and ethical behavior among resource users. Through a wide range of media products and marketing efforts, the Communications Division drives traffic to the agency's revenue-producing products including hunting and fishing licenses, state park visitation and other special programs and events. Communications products include the TPWD Website, the Texas Parks & Wildlife monthly magazine, a weekly PBS television series, the Passport to Texas daily radio program, a video news report program, plus a wide range of internal and external public information items and social media platforms. The division also provides the state's mandatory boater and hunter education programs, conservation education initiatives, and urban outreach programs.
