10 Cities Campaign: Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge

Tucked behind the Mall of America and close to the Minneapolis/Saint Paul Airport is a gateway to what seems like another world. It’s hard to believe that one can leave a large indoor retail space and minutes later be in a quiet natural area, where bald eagles fly and walking the wilderness trails make you feel like you’re hundreds of miles away from anything. Even in a state that prides itself on its public lands, Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge stands out.

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.
