Sheepshead Lots Restoration Fund

South Padre Island is located at the confluence of two major flyways: migration routes on which birds travel during Spring and Fall to and from North, Central, and South America.. In the Spring, SPI is a crucial first landfall – a lifesaver – for birds making the arduous cross-Gulf migration.

For many years, the 12 lots owned by the Valley Land Fund and private landowners between Pompano and Sheepshead along Laguna Blvd., have been a crucial location for these worn out migrants to stop, rest, feed and regain their energy.  Serious birders have long known what an important area this is, and flock there to view some of the 350+  species of birds which have been identified in South Texas.

Through the efforts of volunteers and interested parties, these lots have been rejuvenated, invasive species eradicated, new plantings to provide food and additional trees have been planted.  These efforts have been initially funded by property owners and donations.  But more improvements are needed, such as necessary water features, continuing maintenance to prevent re-growth of invasive species, additional food sources and trees. 

We need your help.  Donate today to purchase additional plants, trees, water features and maintenance needs.  Help us help provide a respite for these amazing birds that bless us with their presence.

Thank you so much.
