Like to learn about the rich heritage of our communities, while helping to make a difference in preserving it? The board of the Texas Plains Trail Region meets every other month at a site within our 52-county region, to conduct business and tour the area. The public is always welcome to attend, and these occasions are excellent opportunities to network with others, discuss best practices and new ideas, and explore the historical, cultural, architectural, and natural resources of Texas.
