The Bahia Grande Hydrologic Restoration project restores and conserves the Bahia Grande wetland complex in the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge (LANWR) near Brownsville, Texas. This project enlarges and stabilizes a pilot channel to increase tidal flow into the Bahia Grande, restoring the system’s natural tidal exchange and creating habitat for a variety of fish, shellfish, and migratory waterfowl.
