If you’ve ever been fascinated by alligators, then you need to attend “Gator Talks”.

The South Padre Island Birding & Nature Center has a new series that teaches you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about alligators.

After each presentation you’ll take part in a guided gator-walking tour at the birding center where you may see a gator relaxing in the marshland or water surrounding the facility.

“Gator Talks” are held Wednesday and Friday at 10:30 a.m. and again on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. The walks will be led by the center’s environmental educator.

The alligator presentations are free with paid general admission to the birding center.
