10 Cities Campaign: South Texas Refuge Complex

When most people think of Texas, they imagine sun and sagebrush, with sprawling ranches and open plains. In reality, the state is incredibly environmentally diverse, encompassing dramatic mountains and desert rivers in the west, and humid, Spanish moss-draped coastal wetlands in the southeast. The South Texas Refuge Complex (STRC) sits in the latter area, mostly located between the border with Mexico and the Gulf. Though it is far from the sprawl of cities like Houston and San Antonio, the Lower Rio Grande Valley area has lost more than 97% of its native habitats to development, making the Complex an important bulwark protecting the ecological health of wildlife corridors in southeast Texas.

Reacquaint Yourself With Wildlife Refuges in 10 Cities

In 2018, we’re going to remind people to get engaged with wildlife refuges by highlighting events and activities taking place around the country, from cleaning up rivers and waterways in Los Angeles to observing butterflies in South Texas to youth leaders from underrepresented communities learning about the fragile wetland ecosystem in Florida. We hope that people will feel energized and engaged by taking part in one of these events, or leave  with a greater understanding of the benefits of conservation, and that they continue to visit their community’s wildlife refuges or participate in related local programs for years to come!
