Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

As far as Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine is concerned – it’s a brand new year, with brand new opportunities to discover why… life’s better outside. Managing editor, Louie Bond, shares with us a story about how technology – often blamed for alienating us from nature — can actually play a part in connecting us with the outdoors.

We’ve discovered that outdoor oriented websites and list serves are helping to bring together all kinds of nature lovers – taking them from the cyber world to the great Texas outdoors.

Katie Armstrong gives us the lowdown on five of these services, which are rapidly gaining popularity with anglers, hunters, birders, really anyone who likes to get outside.

And also in this issue, photographer Wyman Minzer not only shares some of his favorite wildlife action shots, he spills the beans on what it takes to capture that one perfect moment.

And Cheryl Smith Rogers, who is known around Blanco as the “spider lady,” followed Texas Parks and Wildlife biologist, Mike Quinn, to take a closer look at the Lake Tawakoni spider web that captured the imagination of people around the world. Finally, we have a piece on staying warm, so you can curl up with the January issue and figure out how to beat the cold.
