Travel Texas – Port Aransas – 20th Whooping Crane Festival – February 25-28, 2016


The Coastal Bend is the only spot in the United States where the endangered Whooping Crane can be viewed at close range, and the Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce celebrates this astonishing natural wonder with an annual festival honoring these grand birds. In addition to the Whooping Crane, an awesome array of wintering migratory birds flock into the wetlands and onto the Texas shorelines of Mustang Island in and around Port Aransas. Birding tours by land and sea are highlights during the festival.

Other activities include presentations from the University of Texas Marine Science Institute and photography workshops.
