advocacy


The pristine hill country habitat and native wildlife found on the refuge need people to speak up for them. Can you be the voice for the refuge?

Friends of Balcones works hand in hand with the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge to protect wildlife and defend the refuge from harm. Our collective impact is made stronger through participation of individuals like you. Sign up for our quarterly newsletter here or revisit this page to learn more about actions you can take to protect the land, water and wildlife in and around the refuge.


BE A VOICE FOR THE REFUGE!

There are three main issues the Friends of Balcones will always advocate for:

    • Adequate federal funding of the National Wildlife Refuge System;
    • Preservation and protection of undeveloped lands in the hill country, and;
    • Acquisition of pristine habitat for our native Texas bird the golden-cheeked warbler

HOW CAN YOU TAKE ACTION TODAY?

Email or Call Your Representatives to let them know you love wildspaces and request they support the long term protection and enhancement of The Balcones Canyonland National Refuge.

Look up who represents you HERE.

THANK YOU FOR SPEAKING UP FOR THE REFUGE!
