Please consider donating today to help us bring back our habitat and birding events. You can donate online at our website, by mail, or by phone. Please specify your donation goes toward the van and we will reserve it for that goal. No amount is too small or too large, and every donation is tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.

This is an urgent request for your help.

As you may know, our refuge is home to more than 400 bird species, including endangered whooping cranes and aplomado falcons. It also protects over 100,000 acres of coastal prairie, wetlands, and thorn scrub, which provide vital ecosystem services and recreation opportunities for our community.

However, much of our refuge is not accessible by private cars, and the loss of government funding for vehicles has left us severely limited in our ability to educate and inspire visitors about the magnificent habitat and wildlife. That’s why we need your help to purchase a van that will allow us to resume habitat and birding events, which have been suspended for over a year due to the lack of transportation.

A van is a big deal for us. It will enable us to reach more people, especially students, seniors, and low-income families, who otherwise would not be able to visit our refuge. It will also allow us to showcase the diversity and beauty of our refuge, and to raise awareness and appreciation for the conservation challenges we face. A van will also help us reduce our environmental impact, as we will be able to transport more people with fewer trips and less fuel consumption.

Our goal is to raise $70,000 by June 30, 2024, to purchase a 15-passenger van that meets our needs and standards. Every dollar you donate will go directly to this fund, and we will provide you with regular updates and reports on our progress and expenses. We have already secured $7,000 from the Walk for the Wild Fundraiser, and we are confident that with your support and grants, we can reach our target and bring back our habitat and birding events as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support and generosity. We hope to see you on our van soon!
