Corpus Christi, TX
CBBEP has identified land acquisition as a great first step towards conserving at risk lands. Since starting on land acquisition efforts in 2002, we have worked to acquire either fee simple title or conservation easements for more than 12,000 acres of freshwater marsh, forested wetlands, mudflats, riparian corridors, and native upland habitat for conservation management. The highlight of CBBEP’s land conservation and management efforts is the Nueces Delta Preserve, a 10,500 acre property near Odem that not only protects a variety of habitats from future development, but serves as a home for our educational program, and is the site for various monitoring and freshwater inflow projects, as well as wildlife and habitat restoration projects.
