Project Description

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.
