Marsh restoration at San Jacinto Battleground State Historical Park Harris county, Texas
MetadataShow full item record
The San Jacinto marsh is a three-hundred acre tidal wetland complex preserved within the San Jacinto Battleground State Historical Park in Harris County, Texas. The marsh is important for its cultural, as well as biological values. Unfortunately, much of the San Jacinto marsh has deteriorated or disappeared over the years due primarily to subsidence and erosion. Planning for restoration and future management of this site to preserve both its biological and cultural values has been underway since 1993. Because the Department does not have funds to pay for extensive restoration projects, viable partnerships will be the key to a successful project.
