Video News

TPWD provides video news reports that run in newscasts on numerous Texas stations, as well as on cable and satellite outlets around the nation.

This month’s stories include: Texas Parks and Wildlife game wardens are out in force this summer to promote boating safety; more than 350 Largemouth bass have been loaned or donated to the Texas Parks and Wildlife’s Budweiser Sharelunker Program. Recently four of these lunkers were released back into the lake they were caught by the anglers who caught them at the same time; since most of the land in Texas is privately owned, landowners are key to conservation efforts. This year’s Lone Star Land Steward transformed his "worn-out South Texas ranch" into a sight to behold; and the people who love Enchanted Rock State Park near Fredericksburg are volunteering to rebuild its trails.


"Texas Parks & Wildlife" is a weekly half-hour television series seen on PBS affiliates around the state. The episode that airs the week of July 25- Aug. 4 includes, learning the value of bottomland hardwoods; two sides to Galveston Island State Park; squawk of the hawk; hall of fame boats; and Caddo Lake swamps.
