Only two tracts—Eckhardt and Nagel—within this 46,000-acre refuge are now open to general visitation. Additional tracts will likely be opened at a later time. Established in 1992, Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge is intended principally to conserve the nesting habitats of the endangered Black-capped Vireo and Golden-cheeked Warbler. Both species are monitored annually, and various habitat management activities are under way to restore additional habitat, especially for Black-caps.
