This is Passport to Texas

The August issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine will be on newsstands soon, and if you’re a fan of state parks, birding and the border—this may be the perfect issue for you. Editor, Louie Bond.

I think it’s such an interesting mix this month. Our readership is so diverse sometimes it’s quite a challenge to please everybody in each issue, but I do think this is one of those issues that has something for everyone.

And, the wonderful magic of it is they all tie together in a wonderful way.

First, we have an article on state park acquisitions; what we call the golden age. During the 1970s and 80s there was a perfect storm of money and opportunity and we purchased some of our most iconic parks during that time period.

One of our favorite things to do in state parks and wild areas is to bird watch. So, we include our fall migration calendar with lots of events where you can go catch this spectacular fall migration that happens across Texas each year.

And one of the best places to go birding, of course, is down in South Texas along the border, and we have a special look at the border fence this month and its impact on wildlife. So, I think there’s something for everyone in the August issue.
