The Nannie M. Stringfellow WMA has approximately 3,666 acres located in Brazoria County. The WMA consists of primarily a coastal bottomland hardwood forest which lies within the San Bernard River floodplain and is subject to frequent flooding.
The Coastal Bottomlands Mitigation Bank (CBMB) was set up to increase wetland functions by preserving, enhancing, restoring, creating and properly managing threatened, functioning, biologically diverse ecosystems of waters of the United States, including special aquatic sites, and associated uplands of high functional value. The bottomland forest in this area has been shown to be of great value to songbirds. Neotropical migrant songbirds use the forest for seclusion and food on the flight to Mexico. Surveys in the area also indicate many birds over winter in the forests. The primary objective of the management plan is to improve and maintain the forest, grasslands, wetlands and the wildlife habitat. The second objective is to provide public-use opportunities which are compatible with protecting the ecosystem.
