Texas Waterfowl Stamp Program

With the creation of a waterfowl stamp in 1981, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department opted for a bid procedure rather than an art contest and established stringent specifications to select a successful bidder. The procedure paid off, and Texas made $1.2 million from the sale of stamps and art prints with its first year stamp. All revenue from stamp sale receipts may be spent only for research, management and protection of waterfowl; for the acquisition, lease, or development of waterfowl habitats in the state; or for grants as provided by the enabling legislation.
