July 2011Every Drop Counts
The State of Water a Decade Later
The July 2011 issue of Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine celebrates 10 years of examining the state's most precious resource: water. Ever since the premiere in 2002, Texas Parks & Wildlife has devoted the entire July issue to this topic. During the early years of the series, each issue focused on one body of water: bays, rivers, springs, lakes, wetlands and the Gulf of Mexico. For this special 10th anniversary issue, we've assembled some of Texas' best writers and water experts to discuss the progress made during the past decade. We also take a look at the future of water, including available clean drinking water, declining marshland and the after-effects of oil spills in the Gulf.
