Program Notes

The Big Bend is part of the Trans-Pecos region in southwestern Texas, United States, along the border with Mexico, north of the prominent bend in the Rio Grande for which the region is named. Here the Rio Grande passes between the Chisos Mountains in Texas and the Sierra Madre Oriental in Mexico as it changes from running east-southeast to north-northeast. The region is rugged, sparsely populated Chihuahua Desert, including the Chisos Mountains, Chinati Mountains, and the Davis Mountains. The region has well over 1 million acres of public lands, including Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park, Black Gap Wildlife Management Area, Chinati Mountains State Natural Area along the north side of the Rio Grande. It is also the home of the McDonald Observatory.
