The Big Thicket National Preserve, or the surviving remnant of the once vast biological crossroads of North America, called the Big Thicket, consists of a series of nine land units and six water corridors that, together, represent over 97,000 acres. Rather than composed of a single type of habitat, the Big Thicket encompasses a remarkable biological diversity that includes upland hardwood and pine forests, savannahs, flatlands, palmetto hardwoods, floodplain forests, and blackwater swamps. The Turkey Creek Unit is possibly the most biologically diverse parcel in the Big Thicket.
