The Texas A&M Forest Service was created in 1915 as an integral part of The Texas A&M University System. Its mission is to provide statewide leadership and professional assistance to assure that the state’s forest, tree, and related natural resources are wisely used, nurtured, protected, and perpetuated for the benefit of all.
Since its beginnings over a half-century ago, the Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service Forest Health Protection (FHP) program has built an organization of specialists trained to provide technical assistance on forest health-related matters. The mission of FHP is to protect and improve the health of America’s forests.
The mission of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is to increase the sustainable use and conservation of native wildflowers, plants and landscapes. As an experienced educational organization, the Wildflower Center specializes in building partnerships between likeminded organizations and in the dissemination of information to the public.
