NAS CORPUS CHRISTI

Welcome to Naval Air Station Corpus Christi. Our mission is to provide operational and support facilities for the Naval Air Training Command and associated activities. This installation consists of four main land areas totaling 4700 acres: the main Air Station and support facilities; two outlying landing fields, Cabaniss and Waldron; and Peary Place Transmitter Site.

The Naval Air Station is situated on Corpus Christi Bay, in the Coastal Bend area of Texas, one of the most productive bird habitats in North America. Specific habitat types include laurel oak-redbay woodlands, mesquite and deciduous woodlands, meadows and saline wetlands. The Planning Office has currently programmed habitat evaluations for rare and endangered species, and a Watchable Wildlife Area with an observation platform overlooking Oso Bay wetlands. Although much of the acreage is intensively developed, wetlands, outlying fields and runway clear zones provide natural habitat. This results in bird/airstrike hazard as a primary management concern.

Military mission requirements preclude access by the public except by special permission. For information contact the Public Affairs Office at 512-939-2568 or the Natural Resources Manager at 512-939-2159.

NAVY NATURAL RESOURCES AND LAND MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

The Navy and Marine Corps manage more than four million acres worldwide. Much of this land is located in sensitive wetlands along valuable coastlines, some of the most ecologically significant areas in the world. The location of our real estate holdings makes it imperative that we plan and execute our various military missions in harmony with our environment. It is a Department of the Navy goal to promote an environmental protection ethic within the Navy workforce.

The Department of the Navy supports numerous partnerships with other Federal, State, local, and private resource groups to promote such programs as the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation, Wetlands Protection and Enhancement, and Watchable Wildlife.

To succeed in its mission, and to earn public confidence, the Navy must emphasize natural resources stewardship in every aspect of its land use. It does. Come see for yourself and discover our resources.


The U.S. Navy and the National fish and Wildlife foundation are cooperating on an international program to promote conservation of neotropical migratory birds. For information, call U.S. Navy at (703) 325-0427 or NFWF at (202)857-0166.
