Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

Alan Fisher is a writer/producer for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Television series seen on PBS stations statewide. He tells us July programming really cooks…and quacks… and growls….

Coming up in July, we’ll learn about how to cook a gourmet meal on a campfire with a Dutch oven. Many people don’t know it’s the official cooking implement of Texas.

There’s a couple simple rules that I use for folks when they’re starting out. One is a three second rule: you hold your hand six inches above the coals – thousand one…thousand two…thousand three…. If you have to pull you hand away sooner, because its uncomfortable from the heat…it’s hotter than 350.

We’ll also find out about some high-tech research being done on pintail ducks biologists are actually implanting transmitters inside ducks to track their movements. Also coming up in July in the last week, we have a Wild Things segment. Texas Parks and Wildlife’s Ann Miller talks about black bears and how black bears are making a comeback in Texas.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Television series airs on PBS stations. Check your local listings.

That’s our show for today… For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti
