I have sent applications to all of the National Wildlife Refuges near South Padre and have applied with the Texas State Parks. I even sent an application for a workamper position to the KOA Kampground on South Padre Island.
So far, the only offer I have received is for the
World Birding Center in Roma, TX
(click on the link above to go their website)
this center is about 2 1/2 hours from South Padre. If I visit with my daughter on my days off - that means 5 hours of driving and a lot of gas$$$.
I'm wondering if anyone reading this blog
has any experience
with visiting or volunteering at this Center.
I have checked out the website and they have a lot to offer visitors. I'm thinking maybe I could stay closer to my daughter from November to January and then see if I could volunteer from mid-January through April - before going on to a summer job.
Hope to hear some feedback/suggestions from some of my readers, Thanks.
