Houston Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership (Affiliate)
Houston Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership is working with many partners in Houston to bring the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s conservation message to the fourth largest metropolitan area in the U.S. Working with city staff, they are incorporating wildlife conservation and education into the Houston Parks and Recreation Department’s after school and summer programs that reaches thousands of young people. They are helping their partners build capacity and expand their own conservation efforts through technical support, training and community service projects. The Partnership is creating pollinator gardens along bayous, city parks and busy intersections. The five national wildlife refuges within 60 miles of downtown Houston offer a diversity of experiences for urban residents to get outside and enjoy nature.
