"What is common to many is taken least care of, for all men have
greater regard for what is their own than for what they possess in common with others." - Aristotle
Davis Mountains and the Trans Pecos Region
That's Texas. That's the definition of the DMTPHA state of mind.
Freedom is important and the strength of convictions still demands bravery. The members of the
Davis Mountains Trans-Pecos Heritage Association recognize that change is inevitable. DMTPHA
works to assure that the future brings constructive change, built upon our heritage and the wise
use of natural resources. In times past, neighbors came together for barn raisings, cattle
gatherings and camp meetings. Today the need for neighbors to come together is greater than ever.
The Davis Mountains Trans-Pecos Heritage Association has been working on the following issues and threats that could have serious impacts to our property rights. We have studied these issues, attended their meetings, submitted comments and are trying to educate our members about them. It is an ongoing task to keep informed and to keep you informed.
