A huge state with 10 ecosystems
So, what landscape does your mind’s eye conjure when you think of Texas? Unless you’ve spent time in the state, your imagination might run to grassy plains with grazing Longhorns or a sunbaked desert dotted with cactus.
While both scenes are realistic, Texas’ diverse natural beauty encompasses so much more. Covering 266,807 square miles (second only to Alaska), the Lone Star State boasts 10 distinct ecosystems. These include everything from piney woods to wildflower-studded prairies, coastal marshes to spring-fed rivers, and three major mountain ranges.
