From the Texas Parks & Wildlife guidelines:

Texas Parks & Wildlife, the Outdoor Magazine of Texas, is a monthly magazine published by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. We are looking for strong, well-researched and eloquently written stories on all aspects of the Texas outdoors. Texas Parks & Wildlife covers state park destinations, conservation issues, trends, and such outdoor activities as fishing, hunting, camping, bicycling, canoeing and hiking. 

General Tips

We prefer that stories be written in an active rather than passive voice.
Use present tense when possible.
Use good quotes. Quotes from 2-3 experts, whether from inside or outside TPWD, add much to the reliability of a story. A pithy quote is also an excellent way to help paint a picture for the reader. Sidebars, subheads and other devices for breaking up copy are welcome.
