  WHEREAS, The people of Texas are fortunate to reside in a vast
  state that encompasses numerous ecosystems and a rich assortment of
  plant and animal life; and
         WHEREAS, Ranging from the lush forests of East Texas to the
  majestic desert landscape of the Big Bend, from the windswept
  grasslands of the Panhandle to the barrier islands of the Gulf
  Coast, these habitats are home to countless species of trees and
  other vegetation; they are also populated by an immense variety of
  wildlife, including such signature Texas animals as the javelina,
  the western diamondback rattlesnake, the roadrunner, and the
  armadillo, as well as such impressive and rarely seen creatures as
  the mountain lion, the black bear, and the peregrine falcon; and
         WHEREAS, These resources benefit the state in many ways;
  Texans young and old have abundant opportunities to enjoy
  recreational pursuits and to learn about the wonders of the natural
  world, and the great Texas outdoors contributes to economic
  vitality as well; visitors are drawn to the state for fishing,
  hunting, birding, hiking, boating, and myriad other activities that
  boost tourism and create jobs; and
         WHEREAS, The diverse plants, animals, and habitats of the
  Lone Star State are a source of great pride to the people of Texas,
  and it is indeed appropriate to celebrate this rich heritage and to
  highlight the importance of preserving it for future generations;
  now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the 87th Legislature of the State of Texas
  hereby designate November as Texas Wildlife and Conservation Month;

         RESOLVED, That, in accordance with the provisions of Section
  391.004(d), Government Code, this designation remain in effect
  until the 10th anniversary of the date this resolution is finally
  passed by the legislature.
