“Texas Parks & Wildlife” is a weekly half-hour television series seen on PBS affiliates around the state. Airing April 10-17, adventure racing is not new, but holding events in state parks is. At Tyler State Park, manager Bill Smart and his staff welcome this new group of park patrons as they hike, bike, paddle, run, walk, and crawl among the park’s pines. Also this week: Billie Foster helps explain how the ancient pictographs at Seminole Canyon State Park & State Historic Site tell of a lost culture; hunter education instructor Heidi Rao has some tips for handling a gun safely in the field; and the wide open Trans-Pecos is home to the adventurous antelope.
