Caprock Partners Foundation – for the enhancement of the Caprock Canyons

The purposes of the Caprock Partners Foundation are:

  • To ensure the future of Caprock Canyons Complex (Caprock Canyons State Park and Caprock Canyons Trailway State Park) by preserving and protecting its economic, aesthetic, and environmental worth for future generations.
  • To enhance the quality of educational, interpretive, and recreational opportunities in Caprock Canyons Complex.
  • To recruit and organize volunteers, promote regional support, solicit finances and other resources for the perpetuation of Caprock Canyons Complex.
  • To solicit, receive, and administer gifts, memorials, and endowments, for the benefit of Caprock Canyons Complex.

When the bison were initially donated to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and moved to Caprock Canyons State Park in 1997, it was discovered that their DNA was different, and feature genetics that are not shared by any other bison in North America.

In fact, the Official Texas State Bison Herd at Caprock represents the last remaining examples of the Southern Plains variety.
