Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge

Replanting Our Nation’s Forests

Forest Overview

Located on the southern tip of Texas, the Lower Rio Grande Valley is known as one of the most biologically diverse areas in the North America. The wildlife refuge is home to 17 threatened, endangered, and migratory species of wildlife and plants. This awe-inspiring corridor hosts more than 500 species of birds and 330 species of North American butterflies.

Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge Needs Our Help

The 2016 plantings will benefit the Rio Grande and Arroyo Colorado watersheds, both of which have lost more than 95% of their native habitat due to agricultural and urban development. Looming development also threatens habitat for the endangered ocelot, of which only about 50 are known to still roam the United States. With your assistance, we can help re-establish habitat in this significant migratory corridor.

You can help repair damage to wildlife habitats. Read about our efforts in each and restore the awe-inspiring beauty of our state and national forests.
