Coastal Brigade

Texas Brigades added Coastal Brigade Camp to the mix in 2016.  This 5-day program encompasses coastal habitat management, fisheries management, coastal ecology and saltwater fishing.  The tried and true Brigades model of leadership development, education, and empowerment continues at Coastal Brigade. 

Coastal Brigade will select 30 of the brightest and best 13-17 year olds from across Texas to attend camp and become ambassadors of land stewardship and our coastal resources.  At camp, cadets will participate in a number of hands-on activities covering a number of topics including fish identification, saltwater species collection techniques, water quality, habitat management, angling, boater safety, ethics and more.  The other major components of Coastal Brigade are life-skills, including leadership, team-building, critical-thinking, public speaking, and communication. 

After camp, cadets will return to their communities to give presentations and share their new found knowledge.  In turn, they will be rewarded through scholarships and future experiences.
