Event Description

The public is invited to a program focused on the southwest's first urban national wildlife refuge, Albuquerque's Valle de Oro NWR, presented by refuge manager Jennifer Owen-White.

Jennifer Owen-White, refuge manager for the south valley's new Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, will discuss the refuge's establishment, development, and the community's vision for this great resource.Valle de Oro is the first urban refuge in the Southwest and part of a larger push by U.S. Fish and Wildlife to reach urban audiences and connect them to the important habitats and wildlife that the Service protects. Come with your ideas and questions!

Before taking the position at Valle de Oro, Jennifer was the Refuge Manager at the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge and also served as the Visitor Service manager for the South Texas Refuge Complex. She has a B.S. in Biology and an M.S. in Wildlife Science from Texas Tech University. Jennifer is completing her PhD in Forestry and Natural Resource Interpretation from Stephen F. Austin State University where she has focused on connecting primarily Hispanic communities to conservation and the outdoors. Jennifer was first employed at the Houston Museum of Natural Science and later became director of Education at the Science Spectrum Museum in Lubbock. She began working with Texas Parks and Wildlife as a naturalist/interpreter, then as lead biologist and visitor service manager at the World Birding Center State Parks, and finally as regional interpretive specialist overseeing visitor services for the eleven state parks in South Texas.

A short chapter meeting precedes the talk. Native plant books will be on display and available for purchase.
