Together we’ll restore nesting habitat through beach clean-up, host family-friendly programs on sea turtle conservation and ecology, and enjoy pizza dinner and exclusive after-hours access to Sea Turtle, Inc.’s new conservation center. We will observe night nest checks and, if we’re lucky enough to have turtle hatchlings, we’ll help with an early morning release and watch them wiggle into the sea as the sun rises over the Gulf. We wrap up with a dolphin watching eco-cruise through the Laguna Madre.
Host hotel: Isla Grand Beach Resort, South Padre
Fine Print: This expedition is for travelers ages 6 and up. Registration includes all programs, special tours, eco-cruise, and all meals on Saturday. Transportation and lodging are not included.

Enjoy a weekend in Austin and San Antonio learning about bats and taking action to help them. We’ll cruise Lady Bird Lake to toast the world’s largest, urban, bat colony and witness the extraordinary emergence at Bracken Cave where 15 million Mexican free-tailed bats raise pups and set out each summer evening to feed. Together we will restore bat and other pollinator habitat.
