Texas has seen unprecedented population growth over the past few years. However, the state remains stuck at just 4% public lands for children and families to connect with. Now more than ever, it is necessary to forge partnerships and collaborations to come up with creative, local-based solutions to meet the needs of the the state. Texas Children in Nature has been achieving its goals since 2010 to reach the diverse population of the state through our eight regional collaboratives that service 97 counties, reaching over 3.1 million youth and 7.8 million adults in 2015.

We want to share our successes and challenges to help other state and local movements grow. In this workshop, we would like to share our recent survey results, our newly redrafted strategic plan and regional success stories within our own state movement.
