While we are not typically open to the public, the Nueces Delta Preserve does host some public and special events throughout the year.
Delta Discovery Day Family Picnics:
Join us – March 4th, and May 27th 11:00 am-2:00 pm
Come and spend a few hours out with us at the Delta! Our Delta Discovery Picnics allow students who have visited the Delta through a school field trip to bring their families, share what they’ve learned, and explore a little more, but of course, everyone is welcome to come enjoy the sights and sounds of the Nueces Delta Preserve.
Please bring a picnic lunch, picnic blanket, sunscreen/bug repellant, and plenty of water for everyone (we recommend at least two bottles per person). Staff will be scattered around the area to answer questions and give background information on plants, animals, and history. We look forward to seeing you out there!
Register your family here.
Nature Story Time:
January 3rd, February 7th, March 7th, April 4th, and May 2nd
Join us at the Nueces Delta Preserve for Nature Story Time on the first Tuesday of the month this spring, from 9:00 – 10:30 am. Each story time session will focus on a theme and will allow children, with parent or caregiver, to enjoy days at the Delta with nature-themed stories and other activities including nature walks, crafts, and/or live animals. Story Time activities will be targeted for ages 2 -5, but all are welcome to enjoy Story Time activities. Dress for outdoor activity. Except in extreme weather conditions, a portion of each class is spent outdoors.
Please bring your own snacks and bottled water.

Texas Nature Challenge:
The goal of Texas Nature Challenge is to get families and kids outdoors by visiting as many participating parks and nature areas in Texas as they can. At each site, participants complete activity challenges designed for family fun and nature exploration.
This year’s Nature Challenge Event at the Nueces Delta Preserve will be held in conjunction with our Delta Discovery Family Picnic Day on October 22nd. This will be your only opportunity to participate in the NDP’s Nature Challenge.
