The Wetlands Education Center, an educational resource for the citizens of Texas and a living laboratory for students and scientists, is a 3.5 acre salt marsh surrounded by sheltering dunes. An extensive boardwalk system and observation platforms allow people to walk around the marsh area without disturbing the environment. Explore the marsh and learn how plants and animals adapt to life in this wet, salty habitat during biweekly guided walking tours.

Tour days and times change seasonally, so please contact the Marine Science Education Center (361-749-6805) for current tour schedule information.
