The locations have their own road sign with a white Greater Roadrunner on a brown background. The maps are available on-line and through the TPWD website at http://tpwd.texas.gov/huntwild/wildlife/wildlife-trails/hote
The Texas Parks and Wildlife news release said,
"There are nine wildlife trails that invite nature lovers to visit different regions of Texas to view native wildlife. Highway signs mark more than 960 viewing sites, and the website and updated print maps include GPS coordinates to make it easy for travelers to find some of the best spots to view wildlife. The maps also list contact information, entry fees and operating hours for certain attractions along the trails.
The Heart of Texas West and Heart of Texas East driving guides are the most recently updated trail maps in the network. Other trails are: Far West Texas, Upper Texas Coast, Central Texas Coast, Lower Texas Coast, Panhandle Plains, Prairies and Pineywoods West and Prairies and Pineywoods East. Each trail includes several smaller trail loops, making for easy driving trips throughout Texas."
The maps are interactive and not just for birding but also bats, butterflies and other wildlife. --LJ
