The Pecos Pupfish is on the edge of extinction but a group of biologists is trying to help save the species. Caprock Canyons State Park is known as the home of the state bison herd. But there are some much smaller, fuzzier animals on site as well. See how Buffalo Soldiers re-enactors are teaching young people about the ultimate outdoorsmen.
Texas Water Safari, Loggerhead Shrikes & Woodpeckers
Follow two teams of paddlers as they navigate the 260 mile Texas Water Safari. Loggerhead Shrikes can be both beautiful and brutal. Baby woodpeckers are very demanding and noisy when they're hungry.
Powderhorn Legacy, Preaching Taxidermy & Caterpillars
See how several state agencies and environmental organizations came together to acquire the Powderhorn Ranch for outdoor recreation and conservation. There's a preacher in Utopia, Texas who spends some time saving souls, and some time saving hunting and fishing mementos. See some tree hugging caterpillars in the Pineywoods.
We're celebrating with special episodes.
The Texas Parks & Wildlife series on PBS is made possible in part by a grant from the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Additional funding is provided by Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation.
