Youth Conservation Education
Education is key to developing interest in the areas of wildlife
and land management. By teaching students early the
importance of proper conservation practices that benefit wildlife
and water resources, we can develop in these students the desire to
protect the land and know how to do so. Students in the
Trinity River Basin are being taught these principles as we seek to
further conservation efforts.
