About the Horned Lizard Conservation Society
The Horned Lizard Conservation Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to protecting horned lizards throughout North America. Our Mission is to document and publicize the values and conservation needs of horned lizards, to promote horned lizard conservation projects and to assist with horned lizard management initiatives throughout their ranges.
The HLCS was formed in 1990 by a group of concerned citizens in Austin, Texas. HLCS is entirely volunteer based and all officers and members volunteer their time and resources to protect horned lizards.
The Society has a National Board of Directors that oversees the general operation of the organization. We promote education and research based on local needs and interests by forming Chapters in those areas. The Society includes three existing chapters in Texas, Southern California, and Oklahoma with emerging chapters in New Mexico, Utah and Nevada.
The Society offers occasional Grants for scientific research on horned lizards. We also award members who make significant contributions to the society with lifetime memberships or honorary memberships. If you would like to contribute to the Society there are numerous ways to help. We always welcome new faces, new ideas and new inspiration.
