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.
Mid-Coast Master Naturalists will be selling 100’s of hard-to-find native plants at the HummerBird Celebration in Rockport Fri-Sun, Sep 20-22. Why plant natives? Over time, plants & wildlife have adapted to each other—Native plants = best food for native birds & butterflies. If you plant it, they will come! Details
