Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge is a 2,088-acre National Wildlife Refuge situated along the banks of the Rio Grande, south of Alamo in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, in Hidalgo County, South Texas. The wildlife refuge was established for the protection of migratory birds in 1943.

Southern Exposures provides a unique opportunity for youth and their families to share the experience of nature up close and personal. As a strategic outdoor education program, Southern Exposures actively connects children with their natural environment, teaches them about the nature around them, while endowing them with the tools, photography instruction and art concepts necessary to engage their imagination and express themselves creatively. All workshops are lead by Ruth Hoyt.
