Bay Education Center
The Mission-Aransas Reserve operates a visitor center in Rockport at 121 Seabreeze Drive, Rockport, Texas. Whether you live in the area or are just visiting, this is a ‘must see’ and is free and open to the public, Tuesday through Saturday, 1-4 pm.
So many of us are drawn to the local estuaries, but know little about the important role they play in our ecology. The Bay Education Center provides the visitor with an innovative way of exploring and learning about these important bodies of water and the life they support. Stroll at your leisure to enjoy our hands-on exhibits and check out the current water quality in our bays.
An added attraction is Science On a Sphere®, a spherical display system created by NOAA to illustrate Earth science concepts to people of all ages. Stop by for a visit and it will be an experience that will inspire new appreciation and knowledge of the world around you.
