Special to The Leader

San Antonio, Texas – Orange County resident Macie Mutry participated in the Texas Brigades summer leadership camp in June. She was among one hundred sixty-five high school students that took part in this award-winning leadership development program.

The Texas Brigades’ mission is to educate and empower youths with leadership skills and knowledge in wildlife, fisheries, and land stewardship to become conservation ambassadors for a sustained natural resource legacy.

There are seven Brigade camps each summer; two Buckskin Brigades, two Bobwhite Brigades, Bass Brigade, Waterfowl Brigade, and the newest addition, Ranch Brigade. They are held on private ranches in various locations across Texas. Participants must be between 13 to 17 years of age, and submit a complete application for consideration. Dates for 2016 will be available no later than January 1st.

Brigade graduates are available to give presentations to schools and civic groups.
