2103-2104 Season-2200 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, and a number of other public television stations around the country. October 2013 marks our 28th year on PBS. You can also see the show on about 50 city government access channels across the state.
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 see how scientists are using satellite transmitters to learn about the lives and habits of Texas’ wildlife. We’ll take you camping with a bunch of first timers and show you how easy it is to spend some quality time outdoors with your family. We’ll take you rock climbing around the state, we’ll head to the coast to fish for red snapper, and we’ll go dove hunting with a man who did not grow up in a hunting family, but has discovered the joys of being in the field on opening day with good friends.
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 2013 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.
