We Will Not Be Tamed | Appreciating Wilderness

Country Line Magazine | We Will Not Be Tamed TPWD Campaign

Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation is raising awareness and encouraging all Texans to get involved in conserving the wild things and wild places of our state. “We Will Not Be Tamed” calls you to appreciate the wildness of Texas, the vastness of our Texas spirit and why we should be inspired to conserve it.

TPWF has enlisted a group of remarkable Texan outdoorsmen and women, including JT Van Zandt
who stand together and tell their stories about the place that has given so much. We hope they will inspire Texans to get involved. TPWF calls them “The Untamed,” and you can learn more about them at

Meet The Untamed

Texas is wild… and so is the spirit of its people. We are as rugged as the canyons in West Texas. As vibrant as the Hill Country. As grand as the East Texas pines. As diverse as the landscapes of South Texas. And as independent and hard-working as the plains of the Panhandle.
