As part of the World Birding Center, Brownsville’s Resaca de la Palma boasts the largest tract of native habitat in the World Birding Center network. Etched by ancient curves of the Rio Grande, its 1,200 semi-tropical acres provide a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of an international urban center only a few miles away. Through the cooperation of local and federal land management agencies, a wilderness preserved from days gone by is open to nature adventurers for the first time.

The World Birding Center visitors center is the portal to over eight miles of trails, four decks that overlook the four miles of resaca, and a 2.76-mile tram loop that winds through the park. A tram leaves the visitor center every hour on the half hour. Visitors need to park in the parking lot; private vehicles are not allowed within the park. Resaca’s many trails can be accessed by tram, hiking, biking or walking.
