Fort Bend County residents, Logan Maus of Needville and Justin Shih of Sugar Land, participated in the Texas Brigades summer leadership camps in June and July. They were among one hundred sixty-five high school students that took part in this award-winning leadership development program.

The 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.

There are seven Brigade camps each summer; two Buckskin Brigades, two Bobwhite Brigades, Bass Brigade, Waterfowl Brigade, and the newest addition, Ranch Brigade. They are held on private ranches in various locations across Texas.  Participants must be between 13 to 17 years of age, and submit a complete application for consideration.  Dates for 2015 will be available no later than Jan. 1.

Brigade graduates are available to give presentations to schools and civic groups.

For more information, www.texasbrigades.org, or contact Helen Holdsworth, Executive Director, at 855-TXBRIGS, or via email at hholdsworth@texas-wildlife.org.
