Galveston 4th of July Beach Vacation
AUSTIN — The Texas General Land Office (GLO) has made application for a permit to close Rollover Pass on Bolivar Peninsula due to its impacts on beach erosion and sedimentation within the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. If the pass is closed, there will be loss of public recreational fishing access.
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has been awarded more than $3.5 million in competitive federal stimulus grants for solar installations as part of the Distributed Renewable Energy Technology Program. The program is offered by the State of Texas Comptroller as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and will cover up to 20% of the total cost of the projects.
AUSTIN — The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department wants to make it easier for Texans to go fishing and this year has renamed and expanded its learn-to-fish initiative to include dozens of special springtime events being held at 13 state parks throughout Texas.
“Go Fish! Learn-to Fish Events at Texas State Parks” gets into high gear at Bastrop and Huntsville state parks on March 13, and March 16 at Buescher State Park just down the road from Bastrop, in a week when most kids are out of school on Spring Break. The “how-to” events are informative and fun, and often result in participants — both children and adults — landing their first fish.
ATHENS, Texas — Texas fisheries biologists know their jobs are changing. On January 22 a trio of experts will give them a glimpse of what the future may hold at the annual meeting of the Texas Chapter of the American Fisheries Society.
