TPW Magazine April Preview

This is Passport to Texas

The April issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine, on newsstands now, will inspire families to get outside, and to maybe even do volunteer work. Editor, Louie Bond.

So, our idea this month is to get families out fishing together. So, we’re going to take you on six excellent family fishing vacations in Texas, and hope that you’re inspired to take your kids out, spend a weekend or a week out there, just with you and the water and a pole and lots of beautiful silence.

Then, another feature that I think is really special this month is the restoration of Galveston island State Park, which, of course was devastated by Hurricane Ike. There were a lot of questions at the time about the fate of Galveston Island State park, because it was so badly damaged, and there’s a great group of volunteers that were already in place, called the Friends of Galveston Island State Park. But, decided—here’s our call to action—and in they came, and they cleaned up trash, and they got stuff hauled away.

And most importantly, they found partners from everywhere. And, all of these different entities came together and did their part; there’s a lot to redone there, but it looks better than ever. So, people can actually come out this year and enjoy the park—and it’s a great success story.

Thanks, Louie!

That’s our show… with support from the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program…For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
