Project Description

This project acquired a coastal estuarine land tract in Matagorda County, Texas. This tract was transferred to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to be managed as part of the Texas Mid-Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex. The project acquired 692.77 acres including approximately 520 acres of mostly estuarine wetlands. The restoration action protects the tract and primarily estuarine wetlands and bay waters from land use practices that diminish its value for fish and wildlife resources that were affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
