Big Thicket National Preserve is a biological crossroads of incredible diversity; the forests, prairies, and bogs that make up its landscape are home to a tremendous number of different plant and animal species. Though mostly avoided by early Native American and European settlers, the area came to be exploited first for timber and, later, oil. Large areas of the original thicket disappeared as trees were felled and settlement increased.

A growing appreciation of the value of the thicket’s biological diversity led to its designation as a national preserve in 1974. Explore the unique natural and human history of Big Thicket in this short film that captures the rich story.
