Activities/Attractions: The Lower Rio Grande Valley is among the most biologically diverse regions in the United States and is one of the best places for bird viewing in the world. Almost 500 different species have been documented in the area.
The area’s unique foliage and environment make it an ideal location for birds to nest and breed. Millions of birds use the flyway or stop to rest in the native habitat on their seasonal migratory paths. Wildlife such as bobcats, raccoons, green jays, roadrunners, hawks, javelinas, chachalacas and different varieties of butterflies can be seen in their natural habitat.
