Lights Out for Birds, Lake Mineral Wells & Parks on Exhibit
Follow volunteers monitoring bird injuries and mortalities in downtown Dallas and learn how keeping our lights out during migration can help our feathered friends. The mineral waters of Mineral Wells have long lured visitors, but lakeside recreation is the draw today. See how exhibit staff work to tell the stories of state parks through signs, maps and displays.
Back in the Saddle
A Texan rides at all state parks with equestrian trails and finds healing along the way. I didn't want to go alone, but here I am, leaning against the sidewall of the truck pumping gas in Quitaque, on the downhill side of the Caprock Escarpment. There's a dog in the passenger seat, a horse in the trailer and a thick layer of dust on it all.
