In 1963, Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge was established to protect habitat for migrating waterfowl and songbirds along the upper Texas coast. In 1996, local residents and refuge volunteers created the Friends of Anahuac Refuge. A year later, FOAR was incorporated and has been serving the refuge and the community since that time.

Our mission is to support, preserve, promote, and enhance Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge
and its use for recreational, educational, and scientific research purposes.
