The John Bunker Sands Wetland Center (JBSWC) was established in October 2010 as a 501c3 not-for-profit organization. The Center was founded as the education component of a public private partnership between the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) and The Rosewood Corporation to construct a 2,000-acre man-made wetland called the East Fork Water Reuse Project. This project naturally filters treated effluent from the East Fork of the Trinity River and supplies 20% of the water used by over 1.7 million people in the North Texas region. This closed loop urban water cycle is a unique opportunity to teach local and regional people about the importance of water conservation, water reuse, wildlife ecosystems, and wetland systems. The Wetland Center provides environmental education programs to 4th to 12th grade students, focusing on regional water, wetland and wildlife conservation. The Wetland Center is open to the public for hiking, tours, and birdwatching Tuesday – Friday 9:00am-4:00pm and the First and Third Saturday of each month from 7:00am-4:00pm. Come out and visit the beautiful wetland habitat only 5 minutes from Crandall and see a pair of nesting American Bald Eagles, enjoy a picnic lunch, hike the boardwalk, or relax in a rocking chair overlooking the wetland.
Rusted Rail Golf Club features 7,249 yards of relaxing east Texas golf. This par 72 course boasts a course rating of 74.1 with a slope rating of 119 among lush foliage, seven lakes, two creeks along mildly rolling terrain with 21 bunkers for avid golf enthusiasts. Under new ownership, the management team began repair, restoration, revival, and re-branding efforts. The team worked to restore greens and cart pathways along with the historical pride and family values that add to the rich culture of Crandall and surrounding communities. Guests can now enjoy a family-friendly environment, create unforgettable memories, host their special events in our elegant venue and enjoy casual dining options from the Rusted Rail Bar & Grill menu.
