The land that is now called LLELA is positioned where the Blackland Prairie mingles with the dry upland forests of the Eastern Cross Timbers. The Elm Fork of the Trinity River, with its surrounding bottomland forests, winds through the middle of these two ecosystems. This lucky collision makes LLELA a perfect place to find a diversity of wildlife and plants. Well over 360 vertebrate species make a home at LLELA, from river otters to peregrine falcons.

Visitors to LLELA can enjoy a variety of recreational activities which are compatible with their mandate to preserve, protect and restore degraded ecosystems, communities, and native biodiversity. Some of the activities visitors can enjoy are hiking, canoeing, kayaking, birding, camping and fishing.
