A premiere wildlife leadership camp is celebrating 25 years.
"The Rolling Plains Bobwhite Brigade has reached maturity at 25 years of age," said Annaliese Scoggin,a wildlife biologist with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the incoming president of the Brigade. This intensive wildlife leadership camp was the brainchild of Dr. Dale Rollins, then wildlife specialist with Texas AgriLife Extension.
The first of several related camps across the state, the Rolling Plains Bobwhite Brigade helped drive the Texas Brigades to the organization it is now. Other camps include Buckskin Brigades, Bass Brigade, Waterfowl, Ranch and even a Coastal Brigade.
The camp is still accepting applicants. Cost is $500 per cadet, but several sponsors provide scholarships for youth to attend.
"(The) Cost to attend has never been a factor. If a youth is serious in attending, we will find the funds," said Rollins and other camp personnel.
If interested, contact Annaliese Scoggin via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
To celebrate the 25 years, a special anniversary event will be held April 29 at the Gillespie County Fairgrounds in Fredericksburg.
