Where is the festival site? The South Texas Botanical Gardens (8545 South Staples Street, Corpus Christi, TX, 78413) is the host site of the Birdiest Festival in America. All Festival events, except the Keynote Reception take place here. Field trip departures are early, so being prompt is imperative. There is ample parking available. Follow the signs.
How do I get around? It is strongly encouraged to rent a car during your stay. This will allow you to get to the Gardens and to have the ability to visit other destinations in your down time. You can maximize your visit and stay a few extra days. Plenty of birds to see.
