Mission Statement

At the Nueces Delta Preserve, we connect Coastal Bend Classrooms with opportunities and resources that plant the seeds of conservation for protecting our bays and estuaries.


The over 10,000-acre Nueces Delta Preserve protects valuable wetland habitat and offers engaging field experiences for area students.

Located at the north end of Nueces Bay near Odem, Texas, the property protects a variety of habitats and is known for the quality of its conservation and land management practices.

The Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program (CBBEP) bases its Delta Discovery education program here, offering a variety of free field experiences and workshops to teachers and students through scheduled site visits. At the CBBEP, certified interpreters/educators lead groups to discover "the waters that touch the world." Student field experiences are aligned to state standards and are available for all grade levels.

CBBEP workshops encourage teachers to take their knowledge to the classroom. Each workshop participant leaves with knowledge and equipment to continue environmental science education in their schools.

In addition to these education activities, the Nueces Delta Preserve is the site of several research stations and conservation projects. We’ve re-established a prairie wetland, built nest boxes for owls, planted trees, and removed invasive plants. Our land management efforts conserve the property, enhance the habitats, encourage wildlife, and provide a significant space for learning in nature.
