The McFaddin and Texas Point National Wildlife Refuges, located on the upper Texas Coast, supply important feeding and resting habitat for migrating populations of waterfowl. The 55,000 acre McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge consists of the largest remaining freshwater marsh on the Texas Coast and thousands of acres of intermediate to brackish marsh. Neighboring Texas Point National Wildlife Refuge encompasses 8,900 acres of fresh to salt marsh with some wooded uplands and prairie ridges.
Both refuges are located along Highway 87 at the southeastern tip of Texas, near the Louisiana border. Approximately 15 miles south of Port Arthur and 90 miles east of Houston, Texas Point NWR is adjacent to Sabine Pass, while McFaddin NWR lies 12 miles further to the west.
