This is Passport to Texas

At some point this month you’ll want to spend time indoors to cool off from the unrelenting Texas heat. When you do, you can still experience the outdoors with the Texas Parks and Wildlife PBS series. Producer, Alan Fisher, talks about two segments worth watching.

In July we might take you to some new destinations outdoors, but we’ll definitely try and get you some good information. If you’re in the market for a tent, there’s and Outdoor Info about picking out the right one for you.

Now, this particular model right here, this is a two-person, three-season tent. Three-season, meaning that it’s designed for more moderate weather, and it’s got features designed to move a lot of air through the tent.

Also coming up in July, there’s a Wild Things on the Invaders—invasive species in the water and on land.

Sometimes, non-native species are introduced into an area, by someone who releases an unwanted pet, or dumps an aquarium into a local stream or lake.

The Parks and Wildlife television series airs on PBS stations around Texas, and also on a number of municipal cable channels. More information can be found online on the Texas parks and Wildlife website.

That’s our show… We receive support from the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program…funded by your purchase of fishing and hunting equipment and motorboat fuel.
