The SoCal Urban Wildlife Refuge Project

On August 13, 2014, Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and Director Dan Ashe announced a new $1M annual award for the SoCal Urban Wildlife Refuge Project. This effort spans across the San Diego NWR Complex, Los Angeles, and the Hopper Mountain NWR Complex in Ventura. The project connects urban audiences with nature in their backyards, and engages Southern California communities and youth in wildlife conservation.
