One of the last large undeveloped tracts on the west end of Galveston Island, the 300 acres of prairie and marsh at McAllis Point offer critical habitat for birds, including sandhill cranes, which nest there from November to March.
In 2004, TPL and the local Pines and Prairies Land Trust protected 302 acres of land including two of the forested, sandstone mesas known as the Yegua Knobbs, creating the largest conservation parcel in either Bastrop or Lee county.
The 400 acres of rolling, oak-dotted prairie surrounding Eagle Mountain Lake, near Fort Worth also features a sandy lakeshore and habitat for white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, raccoons, and migratory birds.
Working from more than 30 offices nationwide, The Trust for Public Land offers a range of services to meet the conservation needs of the 21st century. We help communities raise funds, conduct research and planning, acquire and protect land, and design and renovate parks, playgrounds, trails, and gardens.
