TPW Education and Outreach Program
For the New Millennium

I. Discussion: The briefing takes a look at a new initiative to aggressively reach new audiences, particularly those within inner cities and those not engaged in Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPW) programs, philosophies or services. TPW will initially use a three-prong approach:

  1. Address education and outreach at the statewide level focusing on effective strategies to reach new audiences
  2. Begin implementation using a regional approach, starting with Houston and Dallas/Ft. Worth
  3. Team "Outdoor Kids" (OK) with the expanding "Community Outdoor Outreach Program" (COOP) the get people hooked on the Texas Outdoors, including: a) families, individuals and mentors and b) new volunteers, sponsors and partners.
