Land Stewardship Ambassadors Application
2021 LSA Application
Land Stewardship Ambassadors
The Witte Museum inspires people to shape the future of Texas through relevant and transformative experiences in nature, science and culture.
The Witte is a bold, cultural leader engaging people in transforming San Antonio to shape the future of Texas through education and powerful partnerships empowering all people to create an extraordinary life.
East Foundation promotes the advancement of land stewardship through ranching, science, and education. We manage over 217,000 acres of native South Texas rangeland, operated as six separate ranches in Jim Hogg, Kenedy, Starr, and Willacy counties. Our land is a working laboratory where scientists and managers work together to address issues important to wildlife management, rangeland health, and ranch productivity. We ensure that ranching and wildlife management work together to conserve healthy rangelands.
With the mutual goal of providing transformational experiences regarding land stewardship for the great state of Texas, the Witte Museum and the East Foundation are partnering to ensure that messages of land stewardship permeate all aspects of the Texas Wild exhibition, labs and educational programs. One outcome of this partnership is that children and adults will be empowered through a better understanding of diverse ecosystems of the state, becoming educated citizens as it relates to water, habitat, land management and conservation issues.
Thank you for your interest in Land Stewardship Ambassadors. Please read all of the instructions carefully as admission to the Land Stewardship Ambassadors program is a competitive process. Applications for each location cohort are pooled and then evaluated and ranked by a committee of professionals within the natural resource and education communities. The top 15 applicants for each location (Bexar, Cameron, and Webb County) are selected and will be notified of their acceptance by December 18, 2020. Preferred candidates are high school students who are highly motivated, active in a variety of extracurricular activities, and are interested in obtaining a comprehensive understanding of natural resource conservation through sustainable practices.
With the pandemic, we do not know what the situation will be in February. All sessions will be formatted according to the latest CDC guidelines. Face coverings, physical distancing, temperature checks and other safety measures may be required of participants but all participants will be notified of the requirements prior to the February 7, 2021 mandatory parent/student information session.
If the situation arises that the cohorts cannot meet in person, we will utilize the Zoom platform to meet virtually.
