TPW TV–Mustang Island

This is Passport to Texas

Everyone has a favorite state park—sometimes more than one. The Texas Parks and Wildlife PBS television series takes viewers to four parks in July. One of the parks you’ll visit also happens to be a favorite of producer, Abe Moore.

I produced a story on Mustang Island State Park down by Port Aransas. It’s got the beach, it’s got the sun, it’s go the fun—it’s a great place to take the family for the summer.

People, when they come out to the island, they’re looking for relaxation—just sit back, relax, take it at their own pace.

Also at Mustang island State Park, it’s great for birding. There are all kinds of bird species there.

If you can see them in the scope moving to the right, right now [bird squawk] —and that’s a snowy. This is great. See, if you can see that guy feeding in the water [wow] those are black neck stilts [birds]… How lovely. What a very elegant looking bird.

So, it’s one of my favorite state parks, and I always recommend—especially with the summer and seaweed and everything going on, it’s good to check the park for beach conditions before you go down there. Parks and Wildlife television is on PBS stations all across the state, and you can go to our website to find stations and times in your area.

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