We found this while searching for things to do in the Brownsville, Tx area. My beautiful wife and I stopped here on the way to the beach. It was about 6 miles r/t off the beach route, but if you are a birder, it's a must stop. We saw Greenjays, yes green, that are indigenous to South Texas, and many other birds not seen in other areas. The sanctuary is a reforested area near the Rio Grande River, formerly part of a cotton plantation. Bring some hiking shoes and mosquito repellant for the trail. We went the day after Labor Day and there were no Mosquitos, but they recommend it anyways. The staff was very knowledgeable about the birds in this area. Worth a stop.
