Boaters, you have an important role to play in protecting the lakes we love from invasive species.
Invaders like giant salvinia and zebra mussels can hitch a ride on your boats and trailers. What can you do to help? Always clean, drain, and dry your boat, trailer,
and gear before traveling from lake to lake.
Do you store your boat in the water? If there are zebra mussels in that lake,
they have very likely attached to your boat. Before moving it to another lake, decontaminate it. Call us at (512) 389-4848 for guidance.

Foxes possess both dog and cat-like qualities, so their young can be called pups or kits. Texas has 4 fox species:
Gray fox – the most common, it’s the only fox that climbs trees and naps in the branches.
Red fox – its many feline traits include arching its back and puffing up when frightened,
and its pups even hiss like kittens. Kit fox – our smallest fox at 3-6 lbs.,
it lives in West Texas deserts. Swift fox – similar to the kit fox, but only found in the Panhandle.
