The Training Facility takes up a small portion of the 2,100 acre ranch. The rest of the ranch will be a wildlife haven. The native habitat that is necessary for wildlife to thrive is being restored. Native Prairie Grasses are being planted where possible even in the training areas. Management is working closely with the State of Texas to institute numerous wildlife management practices to restore the flora and fauna to a natural balance.
