Pictures Speak a Thousand Words
ANAHUAC, January 22, 2013 - The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (Service) and the Friends of Anahuac Refuge (FOAR) are joining forces to create a book dedicated to the 50th Anniversary of Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. FOAR have begun organizing and planning a book committed to showing the public how the efforts of the Service, FOAR, partners, and the local community have helped conserve important habitats along the Upper Texas Coast.
Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge was established on February 27, 1963 to protect migrating birds as they travel to and from their breeding grounds. Fifty years later, through several hurricanes and some droughts, Anahuac Refuge is still doing its best to protect these important wetlands and coastal prairies, for the American people and future generations.
FOAR would like to extend an invitation to photographers and writers to be part of the 50th Anniversary Book Project and join us on February 12, 2013 for refreshments and information about the project. The meeting will take place at the Anahuac Refuge Visitor Center, 4017 FM 563, Anahuac, TX 77514, and will begin at 6pm.
Any photographers who would be willing to submit photographs or writers who would be willing to create original content are encouraged to email bookFOAR@gmail.com. Digital photographs and written content will be accepted from now until Friday, January 31, 2014.
