Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge | Wikipedia audio article


Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge was
established on January 4, 1994 with an initial purchase of 4,400 acres (18 km2). Since that time, the refuge has acquired additional
acreage which now totals 30,000 acres (120 km2). The primary purpose of establishing this refuge
is to protect a portion of the bottomland hardwood forest ecosystem along the Trinity
River located in southeastern Texas. The refuge, which is a remnant of what was
once a much larger natural area is a broad flat floodplain made up of numerous sloughs,
oxbow lakes, artesian wells, and tributaries
