Texas Parks and Wildlife is one of the few state natural resource agencies that still produces a weekly television program. It’s been on the air 33 years.

And the reason we do it is because we have a very good message to let Texans know about.

Series producer, Don Cash.

We’re the folks who help take care of deer and birds and water and parks and all kinds of things. And like I always say: if we don’t tell people what we do here, no one else is going to do it for us.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife TV series, which airs on PBS and other outlets, spreads the message of conservation and recreation in Texas. The new season is shaping up to be one of the best.

Our new season begins the week of October 14th. You know, we’ve got a lot of new stuff. This year, we’re going to look at green jays, black-capped vireos, paddlefish, prairie dogs, chimney swifts. Coyotes. We’ve got stories coming on paddling the San Antonio River. What’s up with Bastrop State park after the fires. We’re going to go diving the Kraken. Take a trip to the Austin library to look at their very green roof. We’re going to look at the oyster industry in Texas, too.

But there is one show this season that took more planning, coordination and cooperation than any other produced before it.

We are devoting an entire show to what happens on the opening weekend of deer season in Texas.

Details coming up on tomorrow’s show.

For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
