Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

The PBS series from Parks and Wildlife is in the second month of a new season – and November does not disappoint. Series producer, Don Cash, highlights some upcoming shows.

We start off with a story about alligators. The alligator population had been reduced greatly by over hunting years back. And the alligator is making a great come back.

Uh, it appears that they are moving further inland because of the destruction of the habitat here in this coastal area here.

Also in November, we have a feature on the fires in the Panhandle in March of 2006 that burned pretty close to a million acres.

We’ve got a really good story in November also on Game Wardens. We seem to do a lot of stuff with game wardens, but they are generally pretty interesting folks and have pretty interesting jobs.

Good morning. State game warden. How’re you doing this morning. Wondering if we can take a look at your fish here. That’s okay? Thank you sir.

We end the month to the Hill Country State Natural Area. It’s just absolutely beautiful and quite primitive. So, if you go to the Hill Country State Natural Area and you want something – you better bring it.

Thanks, Don. Visit for a complete listing of stations that broadcast the series.

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