Texan by Nature brings conservation and business together for the benefit of our people, prosperity, and natural resources. Texas is a special place – the world’s 10th largest economy, leadership in multiple industries, 11 eco regions, 8 mountain ranges, 150+ conservation organizations, the list could go on and on. We believe that our long term prosperity and health is dependent upon our natural resources and that bringing the groups and attributes together that make Texas unique is an opportunity to drive a new model of conservation for the world.
Last year we started a leadership roundtable series that brought together business leaders in each major Texas city to share their thoughts on conservation and its role in their overall mission. Thoughts, successes, dilemmas, and more were shared around the table. Consistently we heard that leaders would like to know more about the work being done across Texas, learn the best practices for their industries, and be recognized for their innovation, collaboration, and efforts in conservation.
Based on the feedback and requests from our roundtables and business partners, an idea was born: The Texan by Nature 20. The TxN 20 is an effort to recognize the best work in conservation coming from Texas based businesses. It’s an opportunity to showcase innovation, commitment, and best practices from a variety of industries. We’re excited to partner with Texas Monthly and businesses across the state to celebrate this work and hope you’ll submit additional data so that the very best is highlighted in the 2019 TxN 20.
