OUT & ABOUT: STEWARDS OF THE WILD

It didn’t take long for the Stewards of the Wild (SOTW) Midland Chapter to become the largest chapter in the state. It happened during the group’s launch party last month to showcase its mission. Advisory council members of the newly formed group hosted the gathering at KD’s BBQ to kick off the chapter and highlight what the organization does.
SOTW is a young professionals program supporting the mission of Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and engages 21- to 45-year-old outdoor enthusiasts by hosting exclusive events to raise awareness of conservation issues facing future generations. More than 300 people showed up and joined the Midland chapter.
In addition to barbecue, the celebration included dancing to Gary P. Nunn. Also on hand was Ben Masters of “Unbranded,” who previewed clips from his latest film.
