Interpretive van tours will be offered at the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge on Saturdays and Sundays, from January through April, at 10 a.m. and at 1 p.m. Each excursion runs about two hours.

Guided tours are presented by trained Refuge Volunteers.

There’s a good chance of seeing alligator, javelina, whooping crane, armadillo, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, ducks, geese, roseate spoonbills and variety of other wildlife species while on the tour. Reservations are required.

The Aransas Lecture Series will host two programs in the Visitor Center Auditorium this month. On Saturday, Jan. 10, from 12-12:50 p.m., Texas Master Naturalist TJ Fox will present a program entitled ‘Aboriginal People of Coastal Texas.”

Come learn about the fascinating natives to our area. On Saturday, Jan 24, from 12-12:50 p.m., author Dr. Lowell Schake will present a program and book signing on his latest publication ‘On Wings of Cranes,” a lively documentation of his father-in-law’s studies and adventures with cranes.
