LLELA is fortuitously located where the Blackland Prairies and the Eastern Cross Timbers meet, with the Elm Fork of the Trinity River and its associated riparian forest winding right through the middle of things. This diversity of habitats creates a profusion of wildlife. Mammals such as bobcats, white-tailed deer, and mink can be found, along with birds such as wild turkeys and painted buntings, a wide variety of reptiles and amphibians, and butterflies and other insects. These areas can be explored along LLELA's ever-growing trail system.
