Resacas are an important component of the Rio Grande Valley’s river delta and were once the habitat of tens of thousands of migrating shore, song, and sea birds. These ancient river channels provided conduits for floodplains to negotiate periodic and natural inundations. The resulting arroyos, or resacas, form arterial, snake-like patterns across the landscape. Before the advent of dams along the Rio Grande, resacas performed nature’s own flood control and assisted wildlife that depended on their peculiar habitats to survive and thrive.
