Patsy Glenn Refuge in Wimberley, Texas

Patsy Sue Glenn
September 20, 1937 – August 14, 2007

Patsy had a vision to create a nature refuge and bird sanctuary in the heart of Wimberley where children and adults alike could bear witness to the natural beauty of the area and be inspired to respect and love birds, flowers, and other native wonders. She was tireless in her efforts to establish the Refuge located next to the Community Center. She was named the first recipient of the Golden Eagle Award in 2002 by the Wimberley Birding Society. As the prime force in establishing the Refuge, it was recently renamed The Patsy Glenn Refuge in honor of her commitment and dedication.

To visit the Patsy Glenn Refuge, turn East at the stoplight at Highway 12 and River Road. Drive in front of the historical Winters- Wimberley House and the Community Center to the Patsy Glenn Refuge beyond the end of the parking lot.

The Patsy Glenn Refuge was established as a 1.8-acre haven for local and migrating birds, other wildlife, insects, and native plants of the Wimberley area. It was also established as a refuge for the people of Wimberley-both visitors and residents-to enjoy the tranquil beauty of the Hill Country in the heart of the village, immediately adjacent to the new Wimberley Community Center.
