PORT ARANSAS, Texas - What began as an opportunity presented by the Texas General Land Office in 2002 has finally come to fruition. The 1,200 acre Nature Preserve at Charlie’s Pasture is open and offers residents and visitors a new way to explore Mustang Island.
“It’s a chance for people to walk into nature,” said Joan Holt, the University of Texas Marine Science Institute’s director of fisheries and mariculture who helped develop the birding sites in the preserve. “People of any age and ability can get a view of an area not a lot of people could get to before. I think it will be used a lot for enjoying nature and sunsets and, of course, bird watching.”
