Eye in the Sky
Technology just keeps getting better, and as a result so does our knowledge of wildlife. With the use of satellite transmitters placed on wildlife we are learning more and new things about the lives and habits of Texas' wildlife. See how biologists gather information about the lives of desert bighorn sheep as they move the through the mountains of west Texas and Mexico, and the endangered Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtle as they travel the Gulf of Mexico.
Parks & Wildlife People: Craig Hensley
He's been described as something out of a storybook. See Guadalupe River State Park Ranger Craig Hensley in action as he finds creative ways to connect folks with nature.
Government Canyon Bike Trails
When it comes to mountain biking in Texas one of the best spots is Government Canyon State Natural area. Grab your bike and helmet as we hit the park for some single track fun!
LBJ's Hill Country Legacy
When Lyndon Baines Johnson helped create the Sauer Beckmann Living History Farm, he wanted to give visitors an appreciation for the hard work and ingenuity of the pioneers and farmers from long ago. Costumed interpreters and volunteers show life as it really was, complete with all the sights, sounds, and (for better or worse) smells of a turn-of-the-century Hill Country farmstead.
