Texas Brigades provides wildlife and natural resource-focused leadership development programs for children and young adults throughout the state of Texas and beyond. It is our mission to educate and empower youths with the necessary leadership skills and knowledge in wildlife, fisheries and land stewardship in an effort to promote the positive development of conservation ambassadors for a sustained natural resource legacy.
WILDLIFE INTENSIVE DEVELOPMENT LEADERSHIP (WILD) PROGRAM
Intensive 18-month program for former or new Texas Brigades participants. This advanced leadership and advocacy program seeks to further develop leadership skills by exposing participants to Texas agricultural and natural resource-related issues, policies and decision makers. The W.I.L.D program also provides a strong focus on the development of professional skills and the ability to find solutions while distinguishing themselves among the top conversation ambassadors in the state of Texas.
ANNUAL SUMMER CAMPS
Ages 13-17 or Incoming High School Seniors
Intensive five-day summer camps that provide fun and interactive educational experiences led by top wildlife biologists and land managers in the state of Texas. In addition to camp-specific activities and instructions, topics covered include biology, habitat management, ecology, botany, photography, media/communications, critical-thinking, team building and leadership development.
TEXAS BRIGADES EXPERIENCES
In partnership with Texas Brigades sponsors and program committees, intensive one-day experiences are provided throughout the year to youth interested in wildlife and natural resources. Each Texas Brigades Experience is individually developed and provides an interactive approach to a specific conservation-related topic.
