Snow Goose, Wild Turkey, White Ibis. Pintail and
Spoonbill, those are the birds that make up The Post
staff. Well, actually that is our wingspan according to
one of the many volunteers that help keep the Texas City
Prairie Preserve functioning. One of the many wonderful
opportunities to see our world as it once was, the Nature
Conservancy has preserved a little over two thousand
acres of what once was over 6 million acres of coastal
prairie along the Texas Coast.
These valuable prairie and marshlands act as natural
buffers against storm damage and hurricanes as well as
providing a home for both migratory and year round populations
of water fowl, shore birds and wading birds as well
as grassland songbirds; making up a population of over
125 species currently with close to 300 different species
over the years of this preserve’s existence.
Visitors are welcome weekdays from 9-4 when the main
gate is open. Scheduled visits for individuals and groups.
can be arranged as well. Wander along the many trails
and see how many different birds you can spot and the
number of different grasses and other vegetation. And
while you are at it, measure Your wingspan before you go
and see if you can spot the bird you are.
To take on the pressing challenges facing our natural
world today, we need passionate people like you to
get out in nature and spread the word about why it’s so
important. You can do your part—no matter where you
are—and even if you have less than an hour to spare.
Choose the way to connect that’s right for you!
