Experience the wetlands from elevated walkways and paved marked trails that take you to the water's edge. There's also a nice outdoor sensory exhibit, and a small but well-stocked indoor learning center. Surprisingly under-used facility, only 4 years old.

I have attended their monthly public lectures, their family science programs and walk the trails almost daily. It's great having such a place right in the neighborhood

Come here almost weekly to walk the dog. Great trails. Be careful though of rattlesnakes. Saw/heard one on the trail so stayed clear. Can see lots of birds here. Definitely recommend a visit.

Birding during the spring migration and this proved to be a wonderful site. Well designed and maintained with great volunteer staff. As my sister said, "a very birdie place".

I've walked all the trails through here multiple times. The area is well kept, and I frequently encounter nearly fearless jackrabbits. Birdwatchers will be in for a treat. Some trails have a slight incline but it isn't overly strenuous to walk any/all of the trails....More

I grew up just 1,500 yards from this place and it has changed so much throughout the years. The biggest change has been the protected walkways around the wetlands. It makes for a peaceful, educational walk among nature

Impressed with this new nature attraction in Corpus. Learning center had some educational materials out, and the guy staffing the front desk was extremely helpful in pointing out what kinds of birds we might see and the best spots on the trail. Borrowed two sets...More

Wonderful area of trails allowing you to walk along the edge of Oso Bat and observe the local flora. Walkways extend onto boardwalks and observation platforms to observe birds in the salt flats and bay. Well done just wish that there were more areas included...More
