George Bristol, Friends board member and development chair, has an incredible legacy regarding his love for parks. I have had the honor of working with George for the past few years and have been awed by his passion for the Nature Center. He not only is my mentor but also my champion. He often tells me to “keep swinging!” Well, George certainly has done that locally — and statewide.
We are thrilled to announce that George has written a book about the history of the Texas state parks system, just in time for the centennial celebration of our parks and historic sites in 2023. In his new book, Texas State Parks: The First 100 Years (1923-2023), you will learn the history of one of Texas’ most treasured assets. George is certainly one the Friends’ most treasured assets.
