It may be chilly now, but this summer was anything but cool. In what officials are calling a "triple whammy," Texas state parks faced drought, heat and wildfires throughout the season.
That means a lot less revenue for a program that gets half its funding from visitors. Now the state park's looking to make up for that 4.9 million dollar budget gap. They're asking the public to begin visiting parks again and chipping in donations where they can.
