This is Passport to Texas

Even people without a computer know about YouTube, the online video sharing website where you can view videos of practically anything.

03—Our YouTube channel has almost 200 videos on it.

Whitney Bishop is a video and web producer who helps oversee Texas Parks and Wildlife’s social media efforts, including its YouTube channel.

08—We have videos on almost all of our state parks, so it you’re thinking of going to a state park in Texas, it’s a great place to go and check it out and see what the park looks like and what it has to offer.

The parks videos give visitors a sense of being there. And with 200 videos and growing, there’s bound to be something for every outdoor enthusiast.

08—We also have stories about hunting and fishing. We have breaking news stories. Like, we’ve been posting recently stories about the oil spill and what Texas parks and Wildlife is doing about it.

In addition to YouTube, you can keep up with Texas Parks and Wildlife via its Facebook fan page, and Twitter feeds.

13—If you’re on Twitter, then you do these 140 character tweets. And Texas Parks and Wildlife also has some Twitter feeds people can follow. And Twitter is kind of like just late breaking news as it’s happening. So, it’s a good way to keep up with what’s going on right at the moment.

Find links to all Texas Parks and Wildlife social media on the Texas Parks and Wildlife website.

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