Southern Exposures at Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge
Date: Saturday, June 15, 2019
Venue: Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge
Address: 22688 Buena Vista Blvd., Los Fresnos, TX 78566
The south Texas landscape is a unique blending of temperate, subtropical, coastal, and desert habitats. Mexican plants and wildlife are at the northernmost edge of their range, while migrating waterfowl and sandhill cranes fly down for the mild winters. This combination makes Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge world famous for its birds, and home to a mix of wildlife found nowhere else.
Laguna Atascosa NWR is the largest protected area of natural habitat left in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, an oasis for wildlife with few alternatives. The refuge’s 45,187 acres become more valuable with each acre lost to development–valuable to wildlife and valuable to those who enjoy wildlife in wildlands.
