Committed To Sustainability
The Rosewood Corporation, alongside the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center, seeks to educate the public and provide research opportunities in water quality and supply, wildlife management, and wetland systems. These efforts include the North Texas Municipal Water District's 2,000-acre East Fork Wetland Project and an additional 1,200 acres of bottomland hardwood forest restoration as part of the Bunker Sands Mitigation Bank.

Today, Rosewood ranch managers maintain a commitment to protecting the land and provide community education through wildlife outreach and environmental sustainability programs. By restoring and developing wetlands, the land provides essential nesting for migratory birds, in addition to conserving water.
ROSEWOOD RANCHES REGULATES WETLAND Management
Rosewood Ranches constructed the original wetlands using a levy system with water outlets installed in the levees to regulate water levels. The system operates similarly to a dam; when boards are pulled from the water outlets to drain the wetlands, grass grows and provides valuable pastures for the cattle. The levy system turned the agricultural land, which was once considered to be poor quality because it was flat and had poor drainage, into the perfect location for wetlands and wildlife that utilize them.
