The National Parks of Texas: In Contact With Beauty


This is a 60 minute documentary that highlights Texas National Parks. This film will help Texans celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service. The film celebrates the culture, history, wildlife and natural wonders preserved at each site, and is organized chronologically by date of creation. Big Bend National Park, which opened in 1944 and covers more than 800,000 acres of prickly desert, canyons and mountains, comes first. The program wraps up with Waco Mammoth National Monument, which became part of the National Park Service last July. This documentary was produced by Lynn Boswell in collaboration with The National Parks Conservation Association, The Big Bend Conservancy and Texas PBS.
