Chihuahua Woods

The Chihuahua Woods Preserve is a relic of what the Rio Grande Valley once was a unique ecosystem with an expansive variety of trees, shrubs and thickets. Today, less than 5 percent of that original Tamaulipan thornscrub habitat remains in its native condition. The preserve is home to many species native to the Valley, and its plant life provides a range of seasonal foods and cover for wildlife. A remarkable cacti population also survives on the property.
