Project Description

The project acquired a coastal estuarine land tract that was conveyed to the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to be managed as part of the Texas Mid-Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex in Matagorda County, Texas. The project acquired around 800 acres, including 555 acres of mostly estuarine wetlands. The restoration action will protect the tract, thereby providing a protective buffer to estuarine and bay waters from future land use changes.
