Coastal marsh creates different patterns along Matagorda Bay coastline at Powderhorn Ranch.

   The consortium that bought the famed Powderhorn Ranch across Matagorda Bay in Calhoun County last year, will ultimately open 17,321 acres to the public.
   Texas Monthly Magazine website carries a feature on the ranch that borders Port O’Connor - and Passo de Caballos in its February 2015 edition.
   Historically, the property once was the hunting ground of the Karankawas, LaSalle’s ship, the Belle, foundered not far from its shoreline and it was near where the famed Texas port of Indianola was established.
   The Nature Conservancy, the Nature Foundation and the Texas Parks & Wildlife Foundation paid $37,700, Texas Monthly said, for the ranch last August, with plans to open the mostly untouched coastal prairie acreage for the public to see.
