Houston Wilderness distributes over 35,000 Wilderness Passports in each calendar year, particularly during the month of May as schools prepare to release students for the summer. The passport, which provides information in both English and Spanish, includes information on getting outdoors in Houston's diverse ecoregions, and provides information on educational pathways in careers in conservation. In this way, we support the crucial link for youth in our local community between a passion for our regional outdoor activities with opportunities to pursue a career in environmental science and conservation.

Sponsor the Great Green Quest!
We are continuously growing the Great Green Quest (GGQ) to include more area school districts, libraries, community centers and youth organizations throughout the region. Individuals and groups may request Wilderness Passports and/or sponsor a school to receive passports anytime of the year. Please help us meet our 2019 goal to distribute 40,000 Wilderness Passports, and get kids excited about careers in conservation and environmental science!
