Program 1711-R — Originally Aired January 4–11, 2009

Bringing back the Guadalupe Bass; land trusts and conservation easements help keep the land natural; freshwater fishing in Texas; see the influence of the CCC at Fort Parker State Park.


  • Restoring a Texas Treasure — The Guadalupe Bass lives in the cool running waters of the Texas Hill Country. But over the last few decades, competition from the popular small-mouth bass population has reduced the Guadalupe Bass to near extinction. Discover what fisheries biologists at the Heart of the Hills Fisheries Science Center are doing to bring back the official state fish of Texas.
  • Take Me Fishing: Freshwater Fishing — From ponds to lakes to rivers, freshwater fishing offers something for everyone.
  • Fort Parker State Park — Water recreation is a popular pastime at Fort Parker State Park. Located less than an hour east of Waco, this park is a fishing and canoeing paradise, thanks in part to a dam built seventy years ago by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
  • In Land We Trust — Each year America loses more than a million acres of open space to urban development. Sprawling growth surrounding cities and towns in Texas threatens both farms and ranchlands. And it fractures wildlife habitat. But the growing land trust movement offers new hope for families interested in preserving their land.
  • Postcard From Texas — Scenic views of the West Texas mountains.
