Texas is home to tens of thousands of native animal and plant species and ecosystems which compose the rich biodiversity of the state. These species form the fabric of over 800 habitat types, from bottomland hardwood forests, big tooth maple canyons, to black grama grasslands. You may see these and other species in their natural habitats when you visit any of the 89 state parks or state natural area located across Texas. Many plants and animals depend on state parks to stay alive and thrive. With every visit, you help protect and conserve the rich biodiversity of Texas.
