Friends of Government Canyon is a non-profit (501c3) organization and depends entirely on donations, grants and volunteer efforts to fulfill its purposes:

  1. To preserve and protect the cultural and natural resources of the Natural Area.
  2. To interpret the natural and cultural resources of Government Canyon State Natural Area (GCSNA) through educational and recreational programs for the visiting public.
  3. To build a constituency of support for the Natural Area.
  4. To provide for the enjoyment and safety of visitors.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) is under-funded and depends on volunteer groups (or “Friends Groups”) throughout the state to accomplish their shared purpose: providing quality and enjoyable outdoor, nature based experiences for the community. Donations from individuals and organizations help us provide GCSNA and TPWD the means to do so.

If you have any questions about donations or questions about membership or non-monetary contributions, please contact the Friends of Government Canyon at
