Event Highlights

Join the Zoo Crew Bird-Saving Campaign for World Migratory Bird Day as we highlight different ways you can help migratory birds. Bird-related activities will take place at the Zoo’s Kathrine G. McGovern Texas Wetlands overlook area and between our Malayan tiger exhibit and Cypress Circle Café.

Activities will include:

  • Intro to Birding Activity
  • Bird Migration Game
  • Bird Conservation Information Table
  • Whooping Cranes Meet the Keeper Talk presented by Phillips 66 at 11:00 a.m.

Lights Out, Texas!

This spring, you can help migratory birds now through June 15 by dimming non-essential lights and closing blinds from 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. every night. Migratory birds are flying through Houston to rest and refuel before continuing to their final destinations. Learn more from our partners at Texas Conservation Alliance.
