BRI board member Dan Allen Hughes Jr. was recently profiled in Texas Land Magazine. Mr. Hughes has made a lifelong commitment to land stewardship in Texas, and works hard to leave the land owned by his family, and the wildlife that inhabits it, better then he found it.
Mr. Hughes also recognizes the importance of public lands, and during his tenure as Chairman of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission he focused on initiating public-private partnerships to acquire public land.
