In case you missed the biggest news to hit Calhoun County in a long time, TPWD made a huge announcement and has posted a video news report on their website about the purchase of more than 17,000 acres of unspoiled tracts of coastal prairie.

The acquisition will conserve a spectacular piece of property that is one of the largest remaining tracts of unspoiled coastal prairie in the state. At $37.7 million it is the largest dollar amount ever raised for a conservation land purchase in the state and represents a new partnership model of achieving conservation goals in an era of rapidly rising land prices. In years to come, Powderhorn Ranch is expected to become a state park and wildlife management area.

The future holds many promises for the public with the coming of a new state park and wildlife management area. View the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEDo0b6ZKAw and for more information including the press release and photos, visit: www.tpwd.texas.gov/powderhornnews .
