TPW Magazine–The Water Issue

Friday, June 18th, 2010

This is a Passport to Texas

Just as swallows return to San Juan Capistrano, California, and buzzards return to Hinckley, Ohio, water issues return to the July edition of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine. Editor, Louie Bond.

Well, we dip ourselves into the cool water in July and study water—just water in general in Texas. It’s the most important issue for us, for you, for everyone. Without water we’ve got nothing.

So, each year we try to look at the most important water issues facing Texans. This year. We’re taking it from your own backyard, from the urban creek and the little critters that dwell there. I know that was my first experience with sticking my toes in the water and becoming fascinated. I think that will resonate with a lot of readers.

We’d like to know how are those streams doing….are those critters still living there…are there healthy streams for our kids to play in. And then we take it through urban partnerships and watershed protection, all the way down to the coast where we’ll look at sea level rise and see how that’s going to impact the Texas coast in the future. So, join us in July to find out what the state of water is this year.

Thanks Louie.

The Texas parks and Wildlife magazine’s water issue is on newsstands now.
