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.
The Leadership Council is comprised of co-chairs representing each game warden region and special ops. Under the leadership of the co-chairs, regional committee members will help Texans understand the important service that game wardens provide, spread the word about the effort to support Texas Game Wardens, and help fundraise for their respective regions. As a program of Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation (TPWF), the Leadership Council serves at the discretion of the TPWF Board of Trustees.
