Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge

The Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge is an extensive 43,000-acre refuge with a varied habitat of salt grass prairies, mud flats, fresh and saltwater marshes and lakes, and salt cedars. These habitats make it a favorite for many species of coastal and migratory birds. Meanwhile, an auto tour, boardwalks, and air conditioned discovery center make it a favorite for Texas birders. Areas on the refuge to explore: Big Slough Boardwalk & Trail, Cox Lake Trail, Otter Slough Trail, Salt Lake Public Fishing Area, Teal Pond, Olney Pond, and Rogers Pond. Combined they make for one of the best waterfowl viewing sites on the Texas coast. During the winter months geese, ducks and sandhill cranes fill the ponds and sloughs. Open daily from sunrise to sunset. Great for kayaking.
