Here in Wood County, we are fortunate to have ideal conditions
to attract the species birders love to find and photograph.

Mineola Nature Preserve

Mineola is an easy drive of about 23 miles south of Winnsboro.
Follow Hwy 37, which merges Hwy 69 in Mineola. The Nature
Preserve is just south of Mineola.

From Hwy 69: turn east onto Loop 564 then turn right onto
CR 2724 (Cap Ranch Road). Go 1.9 miles to the main entrance.
