rpsTHAT works to connect the Deaf Community and the outdoors through education, recreation, and careers. The non-profit was established in 2016 and became a non-profit in 2018. It is working in the Big Thicket as a result of grant funding to the National Park Service.

Says Sam Bragg, Program Coordinator and Crew Leader, “We are eager to continue participation in the current dialogue on how to create a diverse and inclusive environment in conservation projects that create more job opportunities for the deaf.”
