TPW Magazine: Road Trip!

This is Passport to Texas

It won’t be long now before spring arrives, and with it the urge to take a road trip. Start your planning with the March issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine. Editor, Louie Bond.

69—So, this month, we’re going to take you way out west to visit the Texas State Bison herd. Our own Russell Roe went out there and he delves into not only the history and the breeding of this iconic herd, and talks about how they were once nearly extinct, but also they also have new territory to roam out at Caprock Canyon State Park. And with this new territory comes a chance for the public to interact even more with these wonderful creatures. And, if that’s not enough for you, we’ll send you all over the state, because we have picked a couple of dozen of our top natural wonders—we call it the best of Texas, naturally. And we have a wonderful piece written by Katharine Hunter. And I’ll give you a few examples of some f the things we’re going to share. For example, the best little shop of horrors in East Texas, the Big Thicket National Forest, with its carnivorous plants. The best place to get catty would be the Laguna Atascosa Wildlife Refuge where you can see some of the rare plants that we love so much in Texas. The best party with the stars, of course, would be at the MacDonald Observatory, and the best place to catch a sail, would be on the Elisa down in Galveston. So, it’s a whole host of natural wonders for you to enjoy this March.

Thanks, Louie.
