Since our field trips at the McAllen Summit are proving so popular (several have sold out,) we’ve added two more!

Now you can enjoy a trip to the Javelina-Martin Refuge either during the morning or afternoon of Tuesday, March 8. The Javelina-Martin Refuge is a 300-acre wildlife sanctuary and photography ranch complete with blinds (some below ground), small pools of fresh water and feeding stations. The ranch was named for the javelina or collared peccaries that relish this thicket of thorn brush and cactus. Some of the most photogenic wildlife includes javelina, bobcat, great kiskadee, green jay, white-fronted dove, common ground-dove, pyrrhuloxia and greater roadrunner. Cost is only $60.
