THSCMP Mustang Island Field Guide

Mustang Island

Mustang Island is a 30 km- (~18 mile) long barrier island located between Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, south of San Jose Island (or St. Joseph's) and north of Padre Island. Mustang Island has a unique and complicated ecosystem. This field guide visits both ends of Mustang Island and traverses the island from the Gulf of Mexico to the edge of Corpus Christi Bay. We will visit and learn about Packery Channel, Corpus Christi Pass, Port Aransas Nature Preserve, the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center, and Aransas Pass.
