National Wildlife Federation, through partnerships with Harte Research Institute at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and Refugio County leadership, is designing a nature-based project in the region.
The natural features of Refugio County play a dual role of supporting local fishing and tourism-based economy while buffering the shoreline and reducing wave energy to provide hazard risk reduction benefits. The potential for nature-based solutions such as greenways, restoring marshes, or nourishing beaches in your county can help balance extreme event vulnerabilities, strengthen natural features to withstand these impacts, and support long-term development goals of the community members.
We need to hear from you! If you are a resident of Refugio County, we invite you to share your input on how you use outdoor, public spaces in the county, your favorite spots, and more. Your input will be used by the project team to design a nature-based project in your area that is guided by the values of you and your community. It should take around 10 minutes to complete the survey.
