A world of adventure awaits you!
The Fennessey Ranch is part of a legendary 750,000 acre Texas land empire that has remained in the same family for 171 years. The ranch consists of 4,000 acres of abundant wetlands, meadows, natural lakes, riparian woods and brush land and bordered on three sides by the Mission River. The Fennessey is located in the heart of the Central Flyway along a region of the Texas coastline known as the “Coastal Bend.” The Fennessey has opened its gates for a wide array of unique recreational opportunities.

The rookery tours were a wild success. Keep your eyes peeled for May through July boat trips with Todd Steele, our award winning photographer as your guide. Anhinga, herons, bitterns and egrets are all nesting in the middle of a 200 acre fresh water marsh. The yellow lotus and the Mexican blue water lily are well worth aiming your lens at!
Our annual Monarch Madness event is always a huge undertaking, controlled chaos and huge fun where we invite 300 or so 5th and 6th grade Coastal Bend students to the ranch where they learn about conservation wildlife habitat and the migration behaviors of the Monarch Butterfly. The students catch the butterflies, then tag and release them back into the wild. .We would like to thank all of our partners, Nikon who donated 300 t-shirts for this event. University of Texas Marine Science, Aransas Wildlife Refuge, University of Houston and uncounted volunteers from TX. A&M and Wildlife Photo Contest to TX Parks and Wildlife and Center for Coastal studies.
Whether we’re birding photographing, hunting or educating; the Fennessey has something to offer for everyone! So sign up for BIG FUN now!
