Back from Galveston Featherfest and still going through the many photos I made while participating in some great field trips–one of which, was to the Lagow Ranch near Anahuac, Texas. The Lagow Ranch is a working ranch with fields, pasture, brackish marsh, and a fresh water reservoir. Located between the main and East units of Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, the ranch has been maintained for many years to provide excellent habitat for wildlife. The reservoir has large patches of open water and Sea Cane which attracts water loving birds as well as songbirds migrating through the area.
We saw several good birds, alligators, turtles and nutria. Thanks to David for the perfect outdoor potty with a view!
Chip, our guide and was very knowledgeable–since it is his ranch. He mentioned they are getting out of the eco-tourism business due to the amount of time and effort required. This ranch has been on my bucket list so I am glad I got to tour it before the business shuts down. Wishing you and your family all the best, Chip!
