Local Youth Selected to Participate in Wildlife Leadership Camp
Wednesday, June 2, 2010 • Posted June 2, 2010

San Antonio, TX – Gabe Jennings and James Perlichek 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 18th year of the Brigades.

There are five Brigade camps being held this summer; two Buckskin Brigades, two Bobwhite Brigades, and a Bass Brigade.

Due to the high interest of these camps, the application season has closed for this year’s camps. If you would like to receive emails regarding next year’s camps please feel free to contact us.

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.
