2020 Texas Brigades Applications - DUE 3/15/20

The deadline for this summer’s applications is March 15 – please reach out to youth who may be interested! 

Texas Brigades’ mission is to educate and empower youths with leadership skills and knowledge in wildlife, fisheries, and land stewardship to become conservation ambassadors for a sustained natural resource legacy.

Texas Brigades provides a combination of educational programs, including eight summer camps: Bobwhite Brigade (quail), Buckskin Brigade (deer), Bass Brigade,  Waterfowl Brigade (ducks and geese), Ranch Brigade (cattle), and Coastal Brigade (marine life). Other Texas Brigades programs include Wildlife Intensive Leadership Development (W.I.L.D.) and Texas Brigades Experiences. An understanding of the importance of this organization is represented by its cooperating partners, including Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Texas Wildlife Association, Texas Wildlife Association Foundation, USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. Texas Brigades is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Please see the flyer below with more information, and their website is https://www.texasbrigades.org/. In particular, the South Texas Bobwhite Brigade and South Texas Buckskin Brigade could use more applicants, so if you know youth who love quail and deer, encourage them to apply. There is a fee for camp but often cadets are able to get sponsorships from local businesses.
