McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge
Bayous weave through a seemingly endless expanse of cordgrass, reptilian eyes at the water*s surface witness the ever-changing variety of waterfowl, and the call of the clapper rail reverberates through the marsh. For hundreds of years, many of the sights and sounds within this dynamic eco-system have gone untouched. Under the protective umbrella of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the hope and expectation is that they will continue for hundreds more.
Both refuges are located along Highway 87 at the southeastern tip of Texas, near the Louisiana border. Approximately 15 miles south of Port Arthur and 90 miles east of Houston, Texas Point NWR is adjacent to Sabine Pass, while McFaddin NWR lies 12 miles further to the west. The headquarters for both refuges is located on the McFaddin NWR along Clam Lake Road.www.hobogrill.org
