Urgent – Protect Big Bend Ranch State Park!!
Texas Parks & Wildlife Commissioners are considering a proposal to sell 45,000 acres of Big Bend Ranch to a private businessman without a full public debate.
What Needs to be Done:
At the very least the Commissioners should put this proposal on hold and initiate a wide-ranging public dialogue about the pros and cons of selling this property, the terms of a sale, and the use of funds that would be acquired through the sale.
Fax a letter to Texas Parks & Wildlife Commission Chairman Joseph Fitzsimons at 512-389-4814 indicating your concern about the sale of 1/6 of Big Bend Ranch State Park and asking them to delay action on the possible sale until after the public has been fully informed and been given adequate time to comment.
