"Developers started with a land plan that embraced the bountiful natural environment. Bridgeland is located along the eastern boundaries of the Katy Prairie, an environmental gem that has provided refuge and foraging areas for more than 300 species of resident and migratory birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Bridgeland developers worked carefully to protect the valuable land, including the historical Cypress Creek Corridor, a substantial creek system that runs along Bridgeland’s northern boundaries. Careful planning has not only preserved these natural attributes, but also revived the areas through thoughtful development of amenities such as the Cypress Creek Nature Trail. The first 1.5 miles of the nature trail opened in 2008. An additional mile opened this year. Upon completion, the trail will stretch for 6 miles." - http://www.bridgelandlife.com/
