Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge protects coastal marsh and prairies along Galveston Bay, preserving an environment critical for native species and migrating birds.1
An auto tour loop takes visitors around Shoveler Pond, where a variety of birds and marshland inhabitants can often be seen. There are a few boardwalks and walking trails. Fishing and crabbing are popular activities.
- The wildlife refuge is established.

Let’s Do It Again Real Soon
Walking/hiking opportunities are limited, but I’ve never been disappointed by the number of birds I’ve seen while driving through the refuge. I have been disappointed by the alligators; while the area is billed as the alligator capital of Texas, I have yet to see more than one or two on a visit.
