Austin Screenings to Help Keep Texas State Parks Open & Maintained

Whole Earth Provision Co. proudly announces the Seventh Annual Texas Edition of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour and Radical Reels Tour at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Austin, Texas.

The World Tour and Radical Reels Tour showcase international short films and documentaries on outdoor adventure and exploration originally shown at the Banff Mountain Film Festival in Alberta, Canada. The World Tour focuses on mountain adventures and cultures from around the world. Radical Reels Tour features adrenaline-packed action sports. Austin is one of 350 communities and 32 countries around the globe screening this year’s Tours.

The beneficiary for this year’s Austin Banff Tours is Texas State Parks. Texas Parks & Wildlife Department is currently working to raise $4.6 million dollars to help keep parks open and maintained in the wake of extreme drought, wildfires and declines in park visitation and revenue.

“Whole Earth Provision Co. is an avid supporter of our Texas State Parks,” said Jack Jones, company founder and lifelong Texas State Park advocate. “We Texans are blessed with opportunities for an unrivaled range of outdoor adventures. Our State Parks offer rivers, mountains, canyons, caves, lakes, beaches, springs, piney woods and forests, hiking trails, canoeing, sailing, birds, fish, alligators and the list goes on and on. Thanks to Texas State Parks, these magical places belong to the citizens of Texas and are available for all of us to visit and experience. We encourage everyone to take full advantage of these, our Texas treasures. Go visit a Texas State Park today!”

Whole Earth Provision Co. is a homegrown Texas original outfitting adventurers, travelers, nature lovers and families with high quality travel and casual clothing, shoes, accessories, toys, books, gifts, gadgets and gear for backyard living and adventures near and far, from Kerrville to Kilimanjaro.
