Kathrine G. McGovern Texas Wetlands

About the Exhibit

Kathrine G. McGovern Texas Wetlands at the Houston Zoo opened to the public on Friday, May 24. The Texas Wetlands brings together three native Texas species—bald eagles, whooping cranes, and American alligators—in a lush wetland habitat. Thanks to the Endangered Species Act and the efforts of Texans, these three species, once close to extinction, now thrive in the Lone Star State.

Animals to See Here

The Comeback Wit

We’re thrilled to partner with Saint Arnold Brewing Company on our very first beer: the Comeback Wit, which has an incredible story just like the animals that you’ll find in the Kathrine G. McGovern Texas Wetlands. The wit beer style was almost extinct, and it was brewed as the perfect homage to the bald eagles, whooping cranes, and American alligators

The Comeback Wit is a classic Witbier with a subtle aroma of coriander and orange peel and a distinct Belgian yeast character. The complexity of flavors in this medium-bodied ale make it crisp and refreshing. It’s perfect for a summer day!
