New Texas Rivers License Plate Funds Texas Parks & Wildlife Department

By  | 

Are you looking for a lovely new license plate? The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department recently debuted their seventh design available to adorn your vehicle and show your appreciation of Texas nature. A rushing river, huge trees, a fisherman and a kayaker are displayed on the left side of the serene, colorful plate that the Conservation License Plate website lists at $30/year with $22 dollars going toward the TPWD Texas Rivers program, “Conserving Texas Rivers Initiative.”

“We expect this plate will appeal to a broad group of people, including swimmers, tubers, anglers, canoers and kayakers, water conservationists and all of the people who love and appreciate Texas rivers,” Janis Johnson, the Conservation License Plate program manager at the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department told Patch.

If the river design isn’t your style, TPWD offers several other plates including a tent and a bluebonnet that specifically benefits state parks, and a horned toad, rattlesnake, and hummingbird where the funding goes toward the overall organization. But there’s something very calming about the mood the river design paints for the viewer. There’s no word as to whether or not the serenity of the plate can help curb road rage out on Texas highways.
