No. 21 Hughes Family

390,000 acres
The Texas Parks & Wildlife Commission honored the Hughes family by christening a portion of the Devils River State Natural Area the Dan A. Hughes Unit. Hughes led a $10 million fundraising effort that resulted in the purchase of 17,000 acres along the Devils River in Val Verde County. “The acquisition of this culturally and environmentally unique piece of Texas could not have happened without Mr. Hughes’ spirit of generosity and leadership,” said Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Director Carter Smith.
