Meet the Manager
On May 1st we welcomed Kelley Purkey is the new Balcones Canyonlands manager.
Kelly came to us from Tensas River NWR, Tallulah, LA where for nine years Kelly oversaw the protection of the largest population of the Louisiana Brown Bear. In 2016 Interior Secretary visited TRNWR to celebrate the de-listing of the bear from the Endangered Species List.
Kelly says “ I have an open door policy and always am approachable, and I look forward to getting to know all the great folks that support the BCNWR. Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns; I would love to hear from you!
