AG AND OUTDOORS BRIEFS

Locals picked for leadership camps

SAN ANTONIO–Ethan Krumnow and Collin Kostroun, both members of the Milam County 4-H program, 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 19th year of the Brigades.

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