Meet Texas Game Warden Lance Lindley

Our Mission

Gear Up for Game Wardens provides specialty equipment your Texas Game Wardens need to maintain safety and ensure the highest level of service for the people of Texas. The state provides the basic necessities for wardens to do their jobs, but there is still a critical need for additional equipment.

Who We Are

A group of dedicated citizens is partnering with Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation (TPWF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, to launch Gear Up for Game Wardens. As a new program of TPWF, Gear Up for Game Wardens is raising private funds to ensure that Texas’ 550 game wardens have access to specialized equipment beyond their standard issue gear.
