Mid-Coast Chapter, Texas Master Naturalist
Here in the Coastal Bend, the eastern ecozone meets the western, the Gulf of Mexico meets the Coastal Prairies, and the Live Oak Savannah of east Texas meets the Tamaulipan Thorn Scrub of south Texas. We are at the heart of the Central Flyway for migratory birds and butterflies, where flocks fuel up for their fall trip to Central America and resupply on their spring trip back north. This confluence of ecologies creates an area of great biodiversity in which Mid-Coast Chapter Texas Master Naturalists learn, volunteer, and play.
New project: Texas/Oklahoma Pollinator Project (TOPP)
The goal is to gather observational data on what plants are most attractive to bees and other pollinators. Based on your observations, we hope to provide Texas gardeners and naturalists with observation-based, local data to be used for regional fact sheets, and for efforts to conserve our important pollinator species.
