Nurturing the next generation of conservation leaders is the goal of Stewards of the Wild, TPWF’s young professionals program. With chapters in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Midland and Tyler, the program is now the largest of its kind in the state. Stewards of the Wild members are connecting with their peers, learning about critical conservation issues, and helping to build a community of shared love for Texas’ lands, waters and wildlife.
For more than 30 years, Texas Parks and Wildlife’s Toyota ShareLunker Program has partnered with anglers to enhance bass fishing in Texas. The program encourages anglers who have caught trophy-sized largemouth bass to share their catch with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The big fish are spawned, and lunker offspring are then used for brood stock for future fish stocking efforts. The program is expanding in 2018 to feature more ways for anglers to participate.
TPWF is giving Texans more to love about their state parks. Through a competitive matching grant program with the Meta Alice Keith Bratten Foundation, state parks across Texas have access to funds for meaningful enhancements and habitat conservation projects. Thanks to this partnership, improvements from butterfly gardens to astronomy equipment are enriching the state park experience for all Texans.
