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: A World War II veteran is healing some old wounds by watching a reenactment of a 1944 island assault at the Admiral Nimitz State Historic Site-National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg; women are learning about the outdoors through the ’Becoming An Outdoors-Woman’ workshop; a fisherman’s dream comes true when he catches the world’s largest Blue Catfish on a rod and reel; and ’wildscaping’ your yard not only cuts down on your water bill, it also gives wildlife a place to live.
