Visitors have an opportunity to learn about the National Wildlife Refuge System, particularly Aransas National Wildlife Refuge Complex natural and cultural histories.
There’s a good chance of seeing alligator, javelina, whooping crane, armadillo, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, ducks, geese, roseate spoonbills and a variety of other wildlife species while on the tour. Reservations are required due to limited space.
The Aransas lecture series will host programs on two Saturdays from 12-12:50 p.m. in the Visitor Center Auditorium.
On March 7, Texas Master Naturalist Ray Kirkwood will present “Matagorda Island Sea Turtles,” a program about the endangered Kemps Ridley sea turtle. On March 14, Expert Birder Bron Rorex will present “Birding 101 , A Walk through Headquarters Habitats,” where she will lead a birding tour outside the visitor center. Visitors are invited to come learn about endangered sea turtles and migratory birds.
