Get outdoors in our local natural world, support Houston Wilderness' efforts to protect, preserve, and promote our ten ecoregions, and help offer Houston area students the opportunity to learn about the outdoors. Houston Wilderness is excited to announce that this year's Quest will include two brand new features focused on helping to promote careers in conservation and environmental science:


Green Jobs Passport

Houston Wilderness has collaborated with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Houston Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership to develop a new Green Jobs Passport. The passport, which provides information in both English and Spanish, includes not only information on getting outdoors in Houston's diverse ecoregions, but also about different careers related to environmental stewardship and the educational pathways needed to get there. In this way, we hope to establish a crucial link for youth in our local community between a passion for our local outdoors and the possibility of a career pursuing this passion.  

Careers in Conservation" Scholarship

Houston Wilderness is excited to announce a new "Careers in Conservation" scholarship program that will be open to interns and staff of our Network Partners. Contributors to 2019's Quest will have the option to sponsor a $1,000 scholarship for promising interns interested in pursuing undergraduate and graduate-level work in an environmental field. Houston Wilderness is planning to offer five $1,000 scholarships in 2019.

Of course, we are continuing to grow the Great Green Quest in more area school districts, libraries, community centers and youth organizations throughout the region. The GGQ is a great opportunity to get yourself and deserving students outdoors. Although the Quest formally launches in May, you can be an early bird and sign up now and you will receive a Wilderness Packet with all of the information you need to get outdoors exploring Greater Houston's 10 diverse ecoregions. Your sponsorship will also give kids the opportunity to challenge themselves to become the Top "Questers" as they visit the ten ecoregions over the summer months. Please help us meet our 2019 goal to distribute 40,000 Wilderness Passports, and get kids excited about careers in conservation and environmental science!
