I would like to extend a special thank you to those individuals who have contributed so generously during the past year to become a part of the Ned Fritz Society. I invite all of you to join this dedicated community of conservationists in 2014.

Annual Report 2013â€‚3
The Ned Fritz Society Texas Land Conservancy was founded in 1982 by an intrepid Dallas a orney deeply commi ed to conserva on, Edward C. “Ned” Fritz. His passion and vision were instrumental in protec ng the Big Thicket Na onal Preserve, the first of its kind, as well as tens of thousands of acres with Texas Land Conservancy. He was truly a voice for the voiceless in the Texas conserva on world. We are honored by the legacy of Ned Fritz, which con nues to guide our work today. In his memory, we have established a giving society for the most prominent members of Texas Land Conservancy. This group, the Ned Fritz Society, will lead the way to a greener future for Texas. Ned Fritz Society members, donors of $1,000 or more each year, gather annually at a memorable farm-to-plate dinner. Ned cared deeply about Texas’ future. We hope you will join us in con nuing his legacy. To find out more about the Ned Fritz Society and other ways to support Texas Land Conservancy, please visit our website or contact the TLC oﬃce. We would love to hear from you.
