Help Stop the Spread Please help us control the spread of both invasive plant and feral animal populations that compete for the same habitat and food as native Texas species. For example, giant salvinia grows a foot a day, creating a blanket of vegetation, choking our lakes and pushing out native plants. Please clean your boat before and after launching in the water. Feral hogs damage the landscape and feral cats kill songbirds. Do not release domestic stray animals into wild areas. EMERGENCY: Call 911, and contact the park office or staff as many park areas are outside of cell phone range. General Information: (800) 792-1112
