Who is NEO?

Our Mission

NEO is dedicated to helping people of all ages and backgrounds lead more active outdoor-oriented lives for better health, happiness, and wellbeing. 


How do we do it?

NEO is free to join, and we host a variety of events and activities that are open to the public.  We also team up with schools, government entities, and other organizations to host special events. 


We strive to:

  • make all activities fun, safe, and affordable

  • host tons of events year round, rain or shine

  • provide plenty of educational classes

  • give hands-on training with NEO outdoor gear

  • provide equipment for people who have none

  • partner with other great organizations like the        Texas Parks & Wildlife Department


Appreciation and Inclusion

Since we work with people from all walks of life, we include diversity elements in many of our activities.  This promotes a greater understanding between participants, no matter what their backgrounds or differences.  We help turn "tolerance" into "appreciation."
