The costal plains in in the South East part of Texas, where the mouth of the Gulf of Mexico.
Where I am going:
I am traveling to Galveston to play at the beach, visit the Moody Gardens, and go to Schlitterbahn.
The San Jacinto is the river that flows through Galveston, and into the Gulf of Mexico. It is a beautiful river that has amazing wildlife, and vegetation with a cool festival on April 23 with a San Jacinto battle reenactment.
I am also going to visit San Antonio
San Antonio is also in the costal plains. I want to go visit the San Antonio River walk, it is a beautiful area where you can ride in a boat through the city, or have lunch around the river.
Vegetation of the Costal Plains
The vegetation is varied in the Costal Plains, some of the popular plants are mesquite, huisache, Texas persimmon, bluewood, spiny hackberry, blackbrush, and ebony.
It is found in the drier
It is found in areas that get more water, but still doesnt need as much water as plants in other areas.
Mesquite is a tree that is native to texas, and can be found in areas with little water
Canyons are typical in Texas, but there are few in the costal plains.
In Texas there are marshes, which are areas of flat land that is flooded on wet seasons and remains typically wet year-round. There is alot of wildlife, and vegetation in these places.
