The Witte Museum promotes lifelong learning through innovative exhibitions, programs and collections in natural history, science and South Texas heritage.
The mission of the East Foundation is to support wildlife conservation and other public benefits of ranching and private land stewardship. The mission is achieved through research, education and outreach. The East Foundation’s education projects connect students to our natural resources and foster an appreciation of the public benefits derived from ranching and private land stewardship.
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.
