The Texan by Nature Conservation Wrangler Program highlights the very best Texan-led conservation projects occurring in the state. Texan by Nature supports select innovative and transformative projects in the field of conservation with tailored aid, resources, and visibility.
Each year, a selection committee uses a stack rank scoring system to assess the potential impact of submitted projects across a number of quantifiable criteria and then designates between five and ten as Conservation Wranglers. Conservation Wrangler Projects demonstrate tangible returns for people, prosperity, and natural resources.
Projects can focus on different natural resources such as wildlife, plant, and water, can encompass any Texas geography from urban to rural, and can take many forms such as urban pollinator habitat development, rural land rehabilitation, innovative water conservation, or education initiatives. Collaborative partnerships for conservation yield great benefits – for our natural landscapes, native plants and wildlife, and for everyone involved.
