For the second year in a row, April is Texas State Parks Month at Whole Earth Provision Co. Throughout the month you’ll be able to make donations at the cash register to help support our Texas State Parks. You can make a donation in any amount, but for a $20 donation, you’ll receive a $5 Texas State Park gift card redeemable for Park entrance fees and merchandise at State Park stores throughout Texas.
The donations will be used to help with day-to-day operational expenses at more than 90 State Parks. Enhancing visitor programs, maintaining Park facilities and purchasing lawn mowers are just a few of the ways our donations can help.
On your next visit to your favorite Whole Earth store, don’t forget to pick up a free copy of the Texas State Park Guide. It offers a wealth of information about Parks all around Texas. Few states can boast of the range of landscapes, historical sites and outdoor activities available in our State Parks. Whether you’re looking for a daytrip destination or for an extended stay, the Park Guide is filled with great ideas.
On April 28th from 2 to 4 pm, Park Rangers will be on hand in all Whole Earth stores to answer your questions. If, in the meantime, you’re looking for suggestions about Parks close to home, check out your city’s location page on our website. It includes a list of State Parks close by.
Another way to support Texas State Parks is to purchase tickets to the Banff World Tour and Radical Reels film festivals. World Tour will be shown in Austin at the Paramount Theater on Sunday April 14th and in Houston at the Alamo Drafthouse Vintage Park on Tuesday April 16th. Radical Reels will be shown in Austin at the Paramount on Saturday April 13th. World Tour and Radical Reels present some of the best outdoor adventure and high adrenaline sports films from the recent Banff Mountain Film Festival in Banff, Alberta. The proceeds from these shows will also be directed to Texas State Parks.
Last year, Whole Earth raised more than $30,000, combining in-store customer donations and ticket sale proceeds. We hope you will join us in supporting our Texas State Parks once again and help us beat last year’s total with a donation and a visit to see Radical Reels and Banff World Tour films. And last of all, the best way to support our Parks, is to visit them!
