July Magazine Preview

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

The July issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine is on newsstands now. And we get a preview with Associate Publisher, Charles Lohrmann.

July is our water issue. In recent years we’ve done bays, rivers, springs, and wetlands. This year’s water issue is about lakes. And in Texas that means man made reservoirs, except for Caddo Lake, which most people agree is the only natural lake in the state of Texas. And we’re lucky to have a funny and engaging article about Caddo and its history by Barbara Rodriguez.

And, one of the driving forces behind the water issue over the years has been Dr. Larry McKinney, and he is writing a story that explains the “big picture” status of lakes in Texas.

And, then one of the articles that I’m really looking forward to is E. Dan Klepper’s piece about Guerrero, which is the eighteenth century town on the Mexico side of the Rio Grande that was inundated by Falcon Reservoir.

So, we cover a little bit about lake culture and lake issues. And it’s another aspect about the water issue, which is essential to us here in Texas.

Thank you, Charles.

That’s our show…visit us online at… to listen to shows and to share your favorite outdoor story.
