Further downstream is the Sabal Palm refuge. It is actually outside of an existing (Bush-era) wall. There was a big flap about, if memory serves, the previous operators not opposing the wall. When were last there it was being run by a local group and well worth the visit.

My first birding trip here last fall was unforgettable - and I was always aware of my proximity to the Border. News coverage over the weekend of anti-Wall protests in Mission TX points out that the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park and the World Butterfly Center are in the crosshairs.
