The Great Outdoors

RV camping at the Sleepy Valley Resort is a good option if you want to explore the Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park, which lies just a short drive south. It serves as the headquarters for the World Birding Center. Collectively, the center offers a sanctuary for hundreds of bird species and endangered wild cats such as ocelot and jaguarundi. The Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park encompasses 764 acres adjacent to the National Butterfly Center, with more than 250 butterfly species recorded in the area.The Sleepy Valley Resort also makes a good base for visiting the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge, which is a 90-minute drive to the east. It sprawls across 98,000 acres along the Gulf of Mexico. A large number of endangered and threatened species inhabit the refuge, including the ocelot and jaguarundi. It’s also home to more than two dozen pairs of northern aplomado falcons, which were reintroduced to the area in the 1980s by the Peregrine Fund.Slightly closer to Mission is the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, a 2,000-acre protected area along the banks of the Rio Grande near Alamo. It was established in 1943 to provide habitat for migratory bird species, with its riparian landscapes uniquely located at the meeting point of the Chihuahuan Desert, the Gulf Coast, and subtropical wetlands. Almost 400 bird species have been recorded within the refuge’s borders, including black-bellied whistling ducks, blue-winged teals, tricolored herons, and peregrine falcons. In addition to its impressive birdlife, the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge is also home to almost half of all butterfly species found in the United States.
