TPW Magazine March Preview

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

You know you want your kids to spend more time outdoors, but you’re stumped how to make that happen. The March issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine can help. Managing editor, Louie Bond.

This is an issue we’re so excited about because it’s just so relevant to everyone. You know, when you and I were kids, we used to go outside and play all day long outside. These days, kids have so many distractions; so many amusements inside that I think some of them have forgotten what to do outside.

So, in this issue we’re showing fifty really simple, really easy ways to get kids involved in the outdoors. Everything from taking your two-year-old out to make a mud pie, to taking your teenager fishing to maybe geocaching—and it’s just so topical now for us.

And we have sidebars. We feature an older writer from Texas Parks and Wildlife who talks about going barefoot in the 1930s. Everyone went barefoot in East Texas—you know, spring through fall… to everything down to a graduate student who writes about how she may have been the last child in the woods; like Richard Louv’s book, which is really popular right now.

And so, we’re really excited about this issue. And, so we’re hoping it’s going to be a keeper for parents and grandparents. When they’re wondering how in the world to get their kids outdoors, they can refer to this and know what to do.

That’s our show…Remember: Life’s Better Outside… For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
