Wednesday, August 19, 2009 • Posted August 19, 2009

San Antonio, TX – Jacob Bibb and Zach Hudson participated in the Texas Brigades summer leadership camps in June and July. They were among one hundred and fifty-one high school students that took part in this award-winning leadership development program.

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 six Brigade camps each summer; two Buckskin Brigades, two Bobwhite Brigades, the Feathered Forces (which focuses on quail and turkey), and the Bass Brigade.

Participants must be between 13 and 17 years of age, and submit a complete application for consideration. Dates for 2010 will be available later this fall.

Participants are available to give presentations to schools and civic groups.

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