TPW TV–Good-bye Bois d’Arc Creek

Monday, April 5th, 2010

This is Passport to Texas

Photographer, Russell Graves, and his brother Bubba are creating a loving tribute Bois d’Arc Creek. Find out more… on Texas Parks and Wildlife TV… Series Producer, Don Cash:

Russell and his brother are producing a documentary that they’re going to put on their website that’s about growing up in Fannin County along Bois d’Arc Creek.

First time I ever came down to this creek I was about eleven or twelve years old. We’d come down every summer and catch flathead catfish and blue cats.

The catch is that Bois d’Arc creek is scheduled to be the bottom of the Lower Bois d’Arc Reservoir as a water supply reservoir for the North Texas Municipal Water District.

We came into this project trying not to be too political about it, and we thought about how we could preserve its legacy and what it means to use from a personal standpoint.

Russell and I have become pretty good friends over the years, and so I’ve spent some time with him. Being with him out there has really given me a better appreciation for the land and the resources and the water. We did a canoe trip and had just a grand time and it was a beautiful spring day. And to know that they’re going to put water here, and water St. Augustine Grass somewhere, is kind of sad.

Thanks, Don.
