Entrance to Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, in Austwell, TX, on Friday, Dec. 16, 2011. Federal and state partners, including representatives from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and local soil and water conservation districts (SWCDs) held a press conference at the refuge. U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) State Conservationist Salvador Salinas was the keynote speaker; Copano Bay Soil and Water Conservation District Board Member Dallas Ford opened the event; and U.S. Department of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service Aransas National Wildlife Refuge Manager Dan Alonso gave background information about the 115,000-acre refuge that was established in 1939. The refuge fresh water comes from the San Antonio River which flows by the historic Alamo southeasterly toward the Guadalupe River at the estuary of San Antonio Bay, the primary body of water for the refuge. Nationally, USDA-NRCS is dedicating up to $50 million over three years to this effort and will continue to provide the proven technical expertise and that of their partners. The anticipated result is improved water quality, stream flows and wildlife habitat. USDA photo by Lance Cheung.
