Ways to Get Involved

The Texas Coastal Ecological Services Field Office frequently partners with individual citizens, schools, local community, public and private organizations, and State and other federal agencies. Volunteers and college students have assisted in research studies and conservation efforts. Our partnerships with private landowners are vital to conserve and protect our federal trust resources. Our field office takes advantage of programs that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service offers through our volunteer program, Directorate Fellowship Program, Pathways Program, and more. Get in touch with our field office to see how you can get involved!


Our field office values working with volunteers and partners interested in the conservation, management, and restoration of fish and wildlife resources.

Our Partners

The Texas Coastal Ecological Services Field Office is open to working with volunteers who have an interest in the conservation and protection of threatened and endangered and/or other important fish and wildlife species and their habitats. Enduring partnerships with private landowners are vital to conserve these habitats in a state where more than 98% of land is in private ownership. Existing partnerships are wide-ranging, and extremely diverse.


Opportunities within our field office will vary due to current conservation needs, time of year, and resources. If interested in learning more about getting involved, please contact our field office for more details.

Education Programs

While the Texas Coastal Ecological Services Field office does not currently offer any youth programs, staff often volunteer their time with our partners to participate in student science fairs, youth inner city fishing events, and school presentations.
