Wednesday, May 20, 2009 • Posted May 20, 2009

San Antonio, TX – Jacob Bibb and Zach Hudson of Mason County, will participate in the Texas Brigades program this summer. They were selected based on their academic records, interest in wildlife and natural resources, and leadership abilities.

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. This is the 17th year of the Brigades.

There are six Brigade camps being held this summer; two Buckskin Brigades, two Bobwhite Brigades, Bass Brigade, and the Feathered Forces (which focuses on quail and turkey)!

There are some openings still available for qualified applicants. Participants must be between 13 and 17 years of age and submit a complete application for consideration. Applications may be downloaded off of the website, www.texasbrigades.org.

For more information, contact Helen Holdsworth, Executive Director, at 800-TEX-WILD or 210-826-2904, ext. 120 or via email at h_holdsworth@texas-wildlife.org.
