SEGUIN---- The Texas Travel Industry Association's (TTIA) Texas Nature Tourism Council (TNTC) awarded the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority's Coleto Creek Park Manager, Wilfred Korth it's 2010 Texas Nature Tourism Award.

Miles Phillips, 2010 chair of TNTC, presented the Individual Achievement Award to Korth in Galveston, Texas at the TTIA's Annual Travel Summit for Korth's work in developing and promoting nature tourism at Coleto Park and within his region.

"This is an extreme honor knowing the quality of nature tourism operations and operators across the state of Texas," said Korth. Korth has managed the operations of the Coleto Creek Park and recreation activities on the Coleto Creek Reservoir for over 30 years.

The TTIA award program was developed in 2009 to honor those who demonstrate outstanding support of nature tourism and follow best practices for operations, including activities that result in wildlife conservation and support the economic wellbeing and quality of life of their employees and local citizens.

Korth, who has been employed with GBRA for over 30 years, is also an active member of the Goliad County Chamber of Commerce, Coastal Bend Regional Tourism Council, Canoe Trail Goliad, the Missions Tour Bike Ride, and a Texas Master Naturalist.

The GBRA was established by the Texas Legislature in 1933 as a water conservation and reclamation district. GBRA provides stewardship for the water resources in its 10-county statutory district, which begins near the headwaters of the Guadalupe and Blanco rivers, ends at San Antonio Bay, and includes Kendall, Comal, Hays, Caldwell, Guadalupe, Gonzales, DeWitt, Victoria, Calhoun, and Refugio counties.
