ANNUAL FUND RAISING BANQUET

Our biggest event of the year is the annual fund raising banquet that allows us to fund scholarships, grants, and educational programs. Join us for an evening of celebration and conservation to honor our youth and our natural wildlife and habitants.

LOMA ALTA YOUTH HUNTER EDUCATION PROGRAM

This program is designed for local youth as an advanced hunter education and gun safety program. Last year we had close to 100 attendees, including many from Cameron County 4H members, teaching them the basics of hunting and how to safely use guns and bows.

TURKEY RELEASE

With over 100 wild turkeys and hatchlings released to date. Las Huellas is dedicated to the reestablishment of the local population of our native species. Thanks to the efforts of Las Huellas, the wild turkey population continues to grow and spread in Cameron County. If you see turkeys, take a picture and share it with us.
