The Texas Brigades’ mission is to empower high
school youth with the necessary skills and knowledge in wildlife
and fisheries, habitat conservation, land and water stewardship,
team building, communication, and leadership to become ambassadors
for conservation in order to ensure a sustained wildlife and
fisheries legacy for future generations.
There are five Brigade camps each summer; two
Buckskin Brigades, two Bobwhite Brigades, and the Bass Brigade.
Participants must be between 13 and 17 years of
age, and submit a complete application for consideration. Dates for
2011 will be available later this fall.
Participants are available to give presentations
to schools and civic groups.
