 This is definitely a must see destination and one of
the finest Birding and Nature Centers anywhere!!!!!
There is nothing quite like the beauty of the wetlands and
Laguna Madre. With guided birdwalks, evening nature programs,
field trips, and educational format, it is a haven for "Winter Texans",
Children, and school field trips. Visitors come from all over the world to visit. My experience was most pleasant and enjoyable.
I gave this a 5 star rating
