Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation (TPWF) is thrilled to be sponsoring the 2017 Wild Texas Film Tour that will be coming to 11 Texas cities in September and October. The tour will feature Texas wildlife, adventure, and conservation short films along with characters from the films, filmmakers, wildlife biologists and other experts.
“We hope this tour will shine a spotlight on Texas conservation issues, inspire viewers to engage in grassroots efforts, and increase support for local conservation organizations,” said filmmaker Ben Masters, who will host the tour. “If you are intrigued by Texas mountain lions, deer-hunting vegetarians, pronghorn revival, the health of Texas rivers or bison restoration, there’s a film you will enjoy.”
Besides TPWF, other sponsors include YETI, TPWF’s young professionals organization Stewards of the Wild, The Borderlands Research Institute, and King Land & Water. TPWF Stewards of the Wild chapters will be involved in the tour in several locations. The films will be screened in Amarillo, Austin, College Station, Corpus Christi, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, Marfa, Midland and San Antonio.
