TPW MAGAZINE: The Best of Texas’ Natural World

Monday, March 26th, 2012

This is Passport to Texas

The April issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine introduces readers to the best our state’s natural world has to offer… through the eyes of those who protect it. Editor, Louie Bond.

62—We’re doing our Annual Best of Texas feature, and we search out all the best natural things in Texas, whether it’s a kind of insect, or a kind of animal or a place to go or a great activity.

Last year we put in about two dozen of our [magazine] staff’s favorite picks. And this year we expanded to the entire Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and solicited ideas from employees out in the field: biologists, accountants, everybody who works at Parks and Wildlife.

And we’ve picked through and found some really great entries this year. So, there will be lots of suggestions for our readers to go out and find new places and have great new experiences.

We’re also featuring a great article by Russell Roe, our managing editor. He’s explaining how weather radar is now used to track wildlife like birds and bats and insects, and how they can track migration patterns, the affects of climate change and weather.

So we hope now that it’s spring and warm outside that everyone will get outside and visit some of these great places and learn more about the wild world.

Thanks, Louie.
