Plants are the basis of our life on South Padre Island.
Plants protect our beaches from storm damage, our coastlines from erosion, and our water from pollution. They provide essential habitat for birds, fish and wildlife that draw visitors and preserve the uniqueness of coastal region. These visitors are an economic lifeline for our island—they rent our condos and beach homes, stay in our hotels, eat in our restaurants, shop in our stores, and support our economy. We’re connected to plants through the air we breathe, the food we eat, and medicines they provide.
But what do we do to protect plant ecosystems we depend on?
Help complete our development by sponsoring a garden or exhibit from the Vision Board.
We have completed our initial build-out thanks to our Founding Sponsors Cameron County CIAP, Ocean Trust and Bonefish Grill.
