Recently the SCI Austin Chapter held a fundraiser to assist “Gear Up for Game Wardens,” a program that is part of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation. The event raised $4,000 that will be used exclusively to purchase equipment for game wardens in Region 7.
Region 7 includes Austin and the popular recreational waters of the Colorado and Brazos rivers, as well as Lake Buchanan, LBJ and Travis. The western portion of the region is popular with deer hunters, while dove hunters abound in the eastern portion. Though the region is subject to severe flash flooding, the Texas Game Wardens are always ready to provide assistance to residents.
