Information from Texas Parks and Wildlife is available on radio and television, as well as the newsstand.


Passport to Texas, TPWD's radio series of weekday, 90-second stories, is broadcast on more than 100 Texas stations. Airing July 4-8, while Lance Armstrong prepares to pedal his way to a 7th Tour De France win this month, he won't be the only one enjoying the sport of biking. State Parks Division Director Walt Dabney tells us that whether it's dirt or asphalt, there's a road for every bike at a state park near you. Also, TPWD Boating Education Coordinator, Jack Dyess and Boater Education Specialist Dorie Nicholson tell us how to stay safe on the water this Independence Day...and every day.
