All too often you hear of local environmental heroes who have gone unrecognized. Yet their efforts to protect natural resources in Texas are increasingly critical to the well-being of the city or town you call home. That's why the Texas Environmental Excellence Awards program was created to honor Texans who take environmental responsibility personally. Like communities, organizations, individuals, and companies that work tirelessly to tackle environmental challenges.
