Texas Conservation Alliance
Dallas
512-327-4119
Mission:
For the past 45 years, Texas Conservation Alliance has been on a mission to advocate for the protection of wild places and wild things in the state of Texas. From the rivers and forests of East Texas to the prairies of West Texas, we have been engaged with local communities to help them protect their ever-shrinking wildlife habitats. Thanks to TCA, more than 200,000 Texas acres are protected in parks and wildlife refuges. We’ve successfully advocated against unnecessary reservoirs that drown Texas rivers, fought clear-cutting in national forests, and recruited thousands of people to conserve Texas’ beautiful outdoor world.
Texas Conservation Alliance is here to help the citizens of Texas rally local support, gather the facts, and protect against encroachment of wildlife habitats so crucial to the future of our state.
