Powderhorn Wildlife Management Area - coastal Texas on Matagorda Bay
(formerly Powderhorn Ranch)
The 15,000-acre Powderhorn WMA in Calhoun County is one of the largest remaining tracts of pristine coastal prairie in Texas and includes unspoiled coastal forests of live oak and intact wetlands, along with 11 miles of bay front on Matagorda Bay.
Public access to Powderhorn WMA, which was donated to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in 2018, is limited. The property provides habitat for hundreds of species of birds and animals, including the endangered whooping crane and has thousands of acres of freshwater wetlands and salt marshes that offer vital fish and wildlife habitat.
