Who we are


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.
