Celebrate National Wildlife Refuge Week October 7-14, 2023

Register for free and walk to support TEAM LAGUNA ATASCOSA either by walking in your own community or joining us for our event.

Give today! Walk for the Wild is an opportunity to contribute to the success of the nation’s unparalleled network of public lands and waters - the National Wildlife Refuge System.

Walk for the Wild is a national event to get people moving in support of their local national wildlife refuge. Funds raised from this event will directly support wildlife conservation, nature trails, and environmental education in our community. TEAM LAGUNA ATASCOSA contributions will go towards a new FRIENDS Tour Van so we may resume the incredible birding & habitat tours.

Join a movement to deepen human connections to nature.

Sign up to walk today and DONATE with your registration. A portion of your donation will be matched by national supporters of Walk for the Wild and the Public Lands Alliance.

Registration is FREE and opens on September 1st.
