The Texas State Parks Ornament
The Texas State Park ornament program was established in 2002 to help commemorate the diversity and beauty of the Texas State Park System. Each ornament features the natural, cultural, and historical resources that the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department serves to protect. Throughout the collection you'll find images of state parks, wildlife, plants, and some of the many outdoor activities that you can enjoy at the more than 90 state parks and historic sites across the Lone Star State.
The 2015 ornaments continue the tradition of highlighting specific parks throughout the state. This year's designs include Blanco State Park and it's namesake river, one of the many Alligators that call Brazos Bend State Park home, and kite-flying at Mustang Island State Park. This trio of ornaments is just a glimpse at the variety that can be found throughout the Texas State Park system. Revenue generated from the sale of ornaments directly supports the mission of the Texas State Park system.
The ornaments are hand-crafted in the United States with images laser-etched into wood in incredible detail. A short interpretative message is burned into the back of each ornament.
During the month of December, ornaments are available for purchase over-the-phone by calling the Customer Service Center at 512-389-8900. Limited quantities of previous year's ornaments are also available for purchase.

All wooden ornaments measure roughly 3.5 by 4.75 inches, and due to their hand crafted nature, color and contrast will vary slightly so that every ornament is unique.
