Welcome to Friends of

National Wildlife Refuge

The deal for Peaceful Springs closed on December 31, 2014! But its not quite yours yet!  See the video!

 The Trust For Public Lands and The Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center made this happen! FRIENDS (you) contributed $100,000. 
To protect this critical parcel, The Trust for Public Land had to borrow over $1.0 million. We need your help to raise the money to retire the loan and enable the property to be transferred to Balcones Canyonlands NWR.
YOUR DONATION makes this happen!
 Please donate to the Conservation Giving Fund today in whatever amount you are able to contribute.

Congratulations!

WELL DESERVED and LONG OVERDUE!
