Radio

Passport to Texas, TPWD’s radio series of weekday, 90-second stories, is broadcast on more than 100 Texas stations. Airing April 25-29, it’s all aboard for children and a free ride on the Texas State Railroad this summer. Plus, all about how protecting the state’s outdoor resources takes commitment and endurance — we’ll visit the game warden academy. And a rumor of a closure sparked a group of volunteers to become best friends at one state park.

Television

Texas Parks & Wildlife” is a weekly half-hour television series seen on PBS affiliates around the state. Airing April 24-May 1, the job of the Texas game warden has changed over the years, blending the roles of enforcement officer and educator. Cynthia Guajardo-Sorrell is a good example of the new breed of game warden. Not only does she enforce game laws, she even recruits fellow game wardens Dave Raybin and Robert Carlson to help put on a kids fishing day at Lake Jacksonville. Also this week: Cathy Nolte takes us on a tour of Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site; hunter education specialist Ty Harris of Corpus Christi shows us how public hunts help provide Texans affordable opportunities in the outdoors; money for Sport Fish Restoration; conservation outreach specialist Shelly Plante works with blind birders to help them learn how identify birds using their hearing; and finally, enjoy the tranquil beauty of Honey Creek State Natural Area.
