Interpretive van tours will be offered at the Refuge Saturdays and Sundays from January through April at 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Each excursion runs about two hours. Guided tours are presented by trained Refuge Volunteers.

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.

To obtain more information about activities, call the refuge at 361-286-3559 between 8:30 a.m. and 4;30 p.m. daily.
