Local youth participate in Texas Wildlife camps

SAN ANTONIO–Collin Kostroun and Ethan Krumnow participated in the Texas Brigades summer leadership camps in June and July. They were among one hundred and thirty-eight 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 five Brigade camps each summer; two Buckskin Brigades, two Bobwhite Brigades, and the Bass Brigade.

Participants must be between 13 and 17 years of age, and submit a complete application for consideration. Dates for 2012 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 855-TXBRIGS or 210-556-1391, or via email at hholdsworth@texas-wildlife.org.
