Below Texas: Beneath the Surface
Our four part series concludes with footage of the Lone Star State in a way we don't normally get to see. Travel below the rim of Palo Duro Canyon, immerse yourself in a clear Texas river, and travel deep in the Gulf of Mexico, exploring our natural and artificial reefs.
Lake Livingston State Park
Lake Livingston State Park is a popular haven for camping, fishing, hiking, and horseback riding. Tall pine trees shade the picnic and campground areas, while an eighty five thousand acre reservoir provides miles of shoreline to play on and enjoy. Most any kind of fun you can do outdoors, you can do here.
Parks & Wildlife People: Alejandro Farias
Some people find lots of numbers on spreadsheets rather boring and tedious. Not Alejandro Farias. Lots and lots of data is what make him happy. He also enjoys finding new technology and techniques to reduce the time it takes to compile complicated reports, sometimes using Ninja philosophy.
The Last Stand
The pristine coastal prairie landscape is disappearing at a rapid rate in Texas. Once covering millions of acres, less than a tenth of a percent of the original prairie remains. But there is a movement underway to turn things around. Meet some of these prairie patriots who are working to restore coastal prairies back to Texas.
