Did you know the Coastal Bend is the only place in the world where the last naturally occurring, wild population of Whooping Cranes can be viewed at close range? Birding is considered the number one sport in America and according to US Fish and Wildlife Service, you’ll find 51.3 million fellow birders in the United States alone, and that number only continues to grow! It’s no wonder birders from all over the country flock to Port Aransas to experience something they wouldn’t otherwise be able to experience any place else, hence an annual festival in honor of this popular endangered bird! The upcoming 20th Celebration of the Whooping Crane Festival will take place on Feb 25-28th and online registration is now open.  So, whether you’re an avid or amateur birder, photographer or simply someone that enjoys the outdoors, you won’t want to miss out on this event!  Pack your binoculars and come join us here in the Coastal Bend next month for the festivities.
