Exploring Texas' Last Frontier
Nov. 7–10 • Lajitas, Texas (Big Bend)

The Texas Lyceum is hosting a Texas leadership conference at Lajitas Resort and the surrounding Big Bend region to discuss the natural, cultural, economic and historical significance of the Chihuahuan Desert Borderlands. We will venture to the far corner of the state to remind us of the ruggedness, the wide-open spaces, and the diverse landscapes that define us as Texans. We live at a time when the vast majority of Texans—88%—live in cities, and our connection to the natural world and an outdoor way of life has become more distant. The Big Bend region, with its looming mountains, vast open spaces and meandering river, remind us of our rugged, wild and independent selves. As business, political and community leaders, we seek to connect our group with leaders, regional experts and policy makers to facilitate a robust conversation about our natural heritage and the forces of conservation and progress on Texas’ last frontier.
