UH Coastal Center


Environmental researchers at UH have access to a variety of properties throughout the state that are designated as “EcoLabs”. Under this program, landowners get a reduced tax rate by offering access to their land for research and education.

We have a direct relationship with the Long Star Ranch in Burton TX (near Brenham), a 250 acre property that is half restored grasslands and half wooded. The owners are UH alumni. To learn how to access the property, read and sign the user agreement.

There also are a wide variety of other Eco Lab properties in Texas. Many of them are listed on this web site: http://www.texasecolab.org/. You’ll need to create an account in order to review the list of properties.
