Project Description

This project will acquire 2,102 acres of coastal palustrine freshwater wetlands and coastal prairie from The Conservation Fund, to be protected as part of the McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge on the upper Texas coast. This acquisition is contained within the larger 12,376-acre tract known as Sabine Ranch, purchased in September 2016 by TCF to eliminate the imminent fragmentation and development threat to the property.
