Management of LBJ State Park & Historic Site very poor
Park Ranger III Farm Manager (Former Employee), Sauer-Beckmann Living History FarmOctober 12, 2012
TPWD is a much needed department within state government. The State Parks Division has well intentioned, yet sadly poor leadership in certain key positions. Specifically, LBJ State Park is one of the most poorly managed parks in the system. Great location for interaction with visitors from throughout the world adds to the enjoyment of working there.
Very – more... inconsistant as to functional operation.
As a former employee I would not reccomend this particular job or location. Other State Parks offer jobs with greater satisfaction. – less

Pros: good informal science information

Interesting and friendly visitors are the best part of the job. The volunteers are right up at the top of the list too. Dedicated and reliable. Important work done in teaching public about coastal resources.
