Texas Army National Guard, Camp Bowie

Camp Bowie, established in 1940 as a U.S. Army Training Base, is now a Texas Army National Guard (TXARNG) training site. Training includes basic infantry skills, tank maneuvers, combat engineering, helicopter operations, small arms and crew-served weapons firing, personnel/cargo air drops, and demolition. Located on the southern outskirts of Brownwood, Camp Bowie's 8,755 acres are part of the Cross Timbers and Prairies habitat zone. Vegetation is predominatly Plateau Live Oak/Midgrass savanna and provides excellent wildlife habitat. Topography is rolling to steep, with elevation ranging from 1290 to 1590 feet. Surface water is limited to potholes in intermittent streams and stock ponds.

A comprehensive Intergrated Natural Resource Management Plan for Camp Bowie is being developed by TXARNG's Environmental Resources Management Branch (ERMB). The goal is to return lands to their original sustainable condition by use of prescribed-burns and restoration of native plant species. TXARNG has sponsored the "Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survivorship" program at Camp Bowie, Camp Swift and Fort Hood. ERMB uses a geographic information system to review each proposed field training exercise for potential impacts on the environment. Recommendations are made on ways to accomplish training missions while minimizing damage to natural resouces. For information call 512-465-5001 x6035.

United States Army Resources Management

Ther Department of Defense manages more than 25 million acres worldwide. Their challenge is to find a balance in requirements for military mission, security and environmental habitat protection. This effort requires the cooperation and support of the Army and its neighbors. The primary goal is to guarantee the quality of public lands under Army stewardship. The Army supports numerous partnerships with other Federal, State, local and private resource groups to promote such programs as Partners in Flight, the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, Wetlands Protection and Enhancement, and Watchable Wildlife. To succeed in its mission, and to earn public confidence, the Army must emphasize natural resources stewardship in every aspect of its land use. It does. Your are invited to visit Army lands to see how we are doing with our part of America.


The U.S. Army and Partners in Flight are cooperating on an international program to promote conservation of resident and Neotropical migratory birds. For information, visit http://www.dodpif.org, or call Department of Defense Partners in Flight at 540-253-5675
