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.

Get a head start on 2016's Great Green Quest. It's 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. 

This year will also feature an even larger School Sponsorship program that will enable Houston Wilderness to deliver Wilderness Passports to deserving students at non-HISD schools. Give them the opportunity to challenge themselves to become the Top Questers at their schools and compete to make their school the Great Green School of the Year. Through the 2015 Great Green Quest, Houston Wilderness distributed over seven thousand wilderness passports to students at nine schools in the Houston area.
