COPANO CREEK. Copano Creek rises in northeastern Refugio County (at 28°26' N, 97°11' W) and runs for twenty-four miles southeast to its mouth on Copano Bay (at 28°12' N, 97°01' W). The surrounding flat to rolling prairie is surfaced by expansive clay that supports hardwoods, pines, and prairie grasses. The area includes the rich Greta oilfield.
