As Texans, it’s in our nature to take care of the wildlife, native habitat, and natural resources that help our economy thrive and help define our identity as Texans. Texan by Nature contributes to our state’s unique culture of conservation by activating new investments that help take care of Texas. Investments may come in the form of money, time, land, influence, and research. We engage Texans in conservation projects where they live, work, worship, and play because conservation is good business and enhances quality of life for all Texans.
WHO WE AREIn 2011 Mrs. Laura Bush founded Texan by Nature to unite business and conservation leaders who believe our state’s prosperity is dependent on the conservation of our natural resources.
WHAT WE DOWe bring business and conservation together. We amplify projects and activate new investment in conservation, which returns real benefits for people, prosperity, and natural resources. We achieve our goals through our Texan by Nature Certification program, Conservation Wrangler program, and Symposia series.
HOW WE DO ITWe build upon the already impressive efforts that make Texas a leader in natural resource conservation. Texan by Nature connects the brightest minds and projects with the strongest resources and funding to make the biggest impact for Texans, our economy, and our natural world.
We want to connect our Conservation Partners’ programs, projects, expertise, resources, and relationships with others in order to elevate conservation in Texas. Effective partnerships are critical to Texan by Nature’s mission and ability to productively extend our reach to create statewide impact. Effective partnerships require a mutual exchange of value and information between Texan by Nature and Conservation Partners.
We accomplish this through:
--Featuring Conservation Partners on our Conservation Partner page and we ask that Conservation Partners feature Texan by Nature on their respective partner page.
--Connecting relevant Conservation Partners to our programs – Conservation Wrangler, Texan by Nature Certification, and Symposia Series.
--Highlighting Conservation Partners’ on our website and social media channels and we ask that Conservation Partners highlight Texan by Nature on their website and social media channels when applicable.
--COMING SOON: To ensure Texas’ media is updated on all TxN + Conservation Partners’ news, we are creating a monthly round-up that will allow partners to submit events, announcements, and milestones that they would like to share with Texas media.
