L.A.N.D.S. Volunteer Training

Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a TWA L.A.N.D.S. Intensive volunteer! Without dedicated and knowledgeable individuals like yourself TWA would not be able to achieve the amazing impact we have on young Texans and in our great state.


TWA is looking for people who are willing to give their time and talent to help with the L.A.N.D.S. Intensive program.  We need volunteers to teach and to help at organized events (photographer, time keeper, welcome table, etc.). We also need landowners willing to open their gates to students.  And we need financial support.  To make a donation please visit and make sure to designate your donation to Conservation Legacy.
