“As our population has grown, the strain on our natural resources has grown proportionately,” said TWAF Trustee Charles Davidson.  “Our future depends on our ability to manage our natural resources wisely, balancing the needs of man and nature.  It just makes sense to identify our future leaders and support them while they are getting their educations.  We all will benefit from their expertise in the years to come.”

This is the 11th year that TWAF and SALE have teamed up to offer scholarships to future natural resource professionals.  To date, $450,000 in scholarships has been awarded through this partnership.
