Southwest Region, February 17, 2005
Print Friendly Version
The Texas Mid-coast NWR Complex held their annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on February 17, 2005. The dinner, attended by 120 volunteers, staff and families was held at the Freeport House in Freeport, Texas. During 2004, volunteers logged over 15,000 volunteer hours for the Complex. The majority of the hours, more than 9,400 hours, were devoted to public use programs and particularly the Discovery Environmental Education Program. With this, it was fitting to recognize two pioneers in the ever expanding education program as Volunteers of the Year. In addition, a Special Recognition for extended service in the construction of facilities was presented by the Friends of Brazoria Refuges. Other significant contributions were over 2,100 hours for biological program support and nearly 3,000 hours of maintenance work. The Complex has 78 active volunteers. The R/V volunteers were presented with their up to date volunteer hour pin and all volunteers received a Duck Stamp token.
