Help Hueco Tanks!

The Hueck Tanks public use plan is under review and Alex Mares is continuing his decades long personal vendetta against rock climbers to get it closed to climbing.  If your still in town tomorrow night and haven't left for the season show your support at the open house meeting tomorrow night.  See details below

Hueco Tanks SP & HS Open House Meeting

Texas Parks & Wildlife is hosting an Open House Public Meeting on Hueco Tanks State Park & Historic Site.

Hueco Tanks SP & HS entered the Texas State park system in 1969 through legislation in recognition of the need to protect its world-renowned body of Native American pictographs (rock paintings). The site’s purpose is to conserve, restore, and interpret its unique cultural and natural features while providing opportunities for resource compatible recreational and cultural activities.

The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department has assembled a stakeholders group, the Hueco Tanks Working Group, which is charged with exploring the diverse community perspectives, community concerns, opportunities, operation, and facility development at the park. This group is comprised of community groups, educators, recreationists, and Native American’s who have joined together in this effort.

Fundamental to this process is obtaining at-large public opinion, insight, and perspective. TPWD is hosting an Open House to receive general public comment pertaining to Hueco Tanks SP & HS.
