The damage at Bastrop State Park is being assessed and the outcome is grim. Over 95 percent of the park’s 65,000 acres have been burned by the wildfires.

Before the wildfires and the drought that has plagued Texas, the state park was green and abundant. Now the park boasts charred, dead trees throughout it’s burned acres. The current drought could still pose a problem with the reconstruction of the park. Numerous trees were destroyed in the fire and may take years to replant if the drought doesn’t end.

A donation of $100,000 has been given to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to aide in the process of rebuilding the park.
