Did you know that the Coastal Bend is the only place in the United States where you can see the rare and endangered Whooping Crane at close range? Celebrate this natural wonder at the annual festival honoring the beautiful Whooping Crane hosted by the Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce! Along with the Whooping Crane viewings, you will see a variation of wintering migratory birds flying into the wetlands.

This celebration is fun for all ages! There will be a nature-themed trade show with optics, paintings, and photographs that will be featured. Other activities included presentations from world-renowned speakers, photography workshops, and a variety of field trips!
