Wildlife Abounds on Matagorda Bay

School's out, or it will be for most kiddos this week. Have you thought about a trip to the beach this summer? If so, try something different this year. Matagorda County is home to almost 55 miles of Texas shoreline. If it's birding you like, Matagorda County ranked first by the National Audubon Society in the annual Christmas Bird Count. There are more species of birds here than anywhere else in the country! Other activities include fishing, boating, kayaking, beachcombing, and much more. You can even camp right on the beach! Matagorda Bay Nature Park offers nature programs on topics including beachcombing, guided wetland kayak trips, birding, and a nature scavenger hunt. Programs are scheduled throughout the summer, so there's bound to be one that fits your family's schedule. Contact the Matagorda Area Chamber of Commerce for more information on where to stay, where to eat, and things to see and do while you're there. Photo courtesy of slipshod snapshots.
