Texas A&M has dedicated a portion of the Pelican Island Campus to the study of coastal wetlands. The acreage encompasses various habitats, including salt marsh, bay water and beach, sea-grass beds, and freshwater marsh. Over a mile of trails extend around the sea-grass nursery, the saltwater marsh, to the fresh water wetlands, and along the bay shoreline.
Look for wading birds, shorebirds, and neo-tropical migrants.
Free parking is available in the lot on the way to the trail.
