The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department Reminds Texans It's Father's Day Weekend


AUSTIN – The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department is reminding Texans that this weekend is Father's Day weekend and there are lots of great gifts available for fathers, especially the gift of time.  

Spend time with your father outdoors this weekend to celebrate that special bond.  After all, who was it who taught you how to fish?

Here's a poem from the TPWD for Father's Day: 

Who taught you how to bait a hook

or spot a deer — right there! look, look!

Could name a bird just from its song

and only, rarely, got it wrong?


Who taught you how to ride a bike

or led you on your first long hike?

Showed you how to skip a rock,

(all things you can't wrap in a box).


Who taught you how to climb up trees,

to smell the flowers — watch for bees!

Who loves to paddle, wade and swim?

That's right. It's Dad. Three cheers for him!


So here's to all the outdoor dads 

who show their children, girls and lads,

the joys of Texas' great outdoors.

They're pretty cool.

Especially yours.
