LCRA donates Matagorda wetlands to keep from development

The Lower Colorado River Authority has donated a conservation easement on 934 acres of critical Matagorda wetlands to permanently protect the land from future development.

The conserved wetlands are part of LCRA’s Matagorda Bay Nature Park along the mid-Texas Gulf Coast. The conservation easement held by the Colorado River Land Trust will allow LCRA to retain ownership of the property while ensuring the land will be protected as natural open space forever.
