Texas Has a Natural Ally in the Fight Against Climate Change

When you think of marshlands, you may not think about Texas. But the Lone Star State is as deep as it is wide. Past the canyons and deserts and brushlands, about two hours east of Houston and not far from the Louisiana border, sits one of the most ecologically important pieces of land in the entire state. Not only is the area flush with over 400 species of migratory birds, it’s also essential to helping Texas weather the brunt of catastrophic rain fall from hurricanes and climate change.
