Wetlands Walk Podcast

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Wildlife Restoration Program

Texas Parks and Wildlife, in conjunction with Texas State University-San Marcos and Texas Watch, developed a podcast that takes listeners on a wetland walking tour.

Well, we created a Texas wetlands podcast. And then we also have another version that’s site specific for the Aquarena wetlands, which are at Spring Lake in San Marcos.

Lisa Korth is education coordinator for the Freshwater Resources program in San Marcos.

Wetlands are an integral part of the natural water system of Texas. Because it’s really only sustainable if we view it as a whole in which all of the parts are preserved and protected. And that was a real inspiration to create this podcast.

Korth says she believes the wetlands walk podcast will help to create a more enriching outdoor experience for those who take part.

At Texas Parks and Wildlife we think life is better outside. And so, we’re trying to come up with as many outreach opportunities as we can to get people outside, and this is a great way for someone to go to a wetland and have something that they can take with them on their mp3 player, or their phone, to learn about the importance of wetlands as a natural resource.

More on wetlands and where to download the podcast on tomorrow’s show.

That’s our show for today… with support from the Wildlife Restoration program…providing funding for wetland conservation through the Private Lands Enhancement
