Texas was the first state in the nation to create birding and wildlife viewing trails, an idea that resulted in similar projects throughout North America.

These trails provide economic incentives for landowners and communities to conserve habitats while providing recreational opportunities for the traveling public. The wildlife trails of Texas promote sustainable economic development and build public support for conservation of wildlife and habitats.
