Former Texas Trustees


Texas Heroes

Check out some of Texas' (fashion-conscious) former trustees

The history of The Nature Conservancy of Texas was written in large part by the men and women who dedicated themselves to the ideals of conservation by serving as members of the Board of Trustees. Their commitment, passion and support for our mission laid the foundation for the achievements of yesterday and the successes yet to come.

In every decade that has passed, the guiding hands of our trustees have steadied our course and ensured that The Nature Conservancy of Texas took the wisest, most-effective measures to achieve lasting conservation results.
