TWA’s L.A.N.D.S. Outreach programs continued their success during the month of April.   Many thanks to the Texas Wildlife Association Foundation for its support of the current and future endeavors as we educate the youth of Texas on natural resource literacy and private land stewardship.  As the numbers show, TWA is making a difference!
