2014–2015 Season — 2300 Series
Texas Parks & Wildlife on PBS and Cable
About the Series
Texas Parks & Wildlife is a weekly, half-hour program that airs on all the PBS stations throughout the Lone Star state, as well as a number of other public television stations around the country. You can also see the show on about 50 city government access channels across the state. October 2014 marks our 29th year on PBS
Each week, our program travels to several different destinations around Texas. The stories cover a wide range of topics from in-depth issues about conservation and the environment, to fun family activities in the outdoors. This season we’ll tag along as biologists capture endangered whooping cranes in an effort to learn about the range and travel habits of these big birds. We’ll spend some time in the Dallas-Fort Worth area learning how bobcats live in this very urban area. We’ve also got stories on sharks and paddlefish in the state and how they are surviving as their ecosystems undergo various changes. We’ll take you rock climbing with some energetic college students, and go dove hunting with a native Texan that is fairly new to the hunting experience.
This season you’ll meet some of the Texas Parks & Wildlife people that work behind the scenes and make important contributions to conservation in the state. Our Outdoor Info segments offer all kinds of handy tips; from hunting and fishing basics to finding places to paddle a kayak or canoe. Wild Things is back with interesting and obscure facts about some of our native Texas wildlife. We’ll also introduce you to the 2014 Lone Star Land Steward award winners, and feature our fabulous state parks and historic sites. And of course, each week we’ll present our award winning stories about the people and places that make the outdoors of Texas the natural place to be.
Our hope is to inspire you to get outdoors and visit the natural places in our state. We want to provide a compelling reason for you to care about your outdoor and cultural heritage. Maybe you’ll even get involved and help preserve a piece of that heritage. It’s our hope that you’ll develop a new appreciation for the natural world, a world that’s right here in your backyard. Please join us as we explore the natural State of Texas.
