Texas is an important stopping point for many migratory birds. In the spring, many birds make Galveston Island their first landfall as they are migrating north. Join us as we explore Galveston Island State Park and look for as many migratory birds as we can. We will spend the morning birding throughout the park’s bayside and the afternoon participating in a beach clean up to help protect shorebirds and sea turtles.
We will meet at the Houston Zoo at Gate 8 which is approximately 200 yards to the left of the main entrance at 8:00am and will return to the Zoo by 4:00pm. Transportation to Galveston Island State Park will be provided by the Houston Zoo.
Be sure to bring a lunch and reusable water bottle. Wear clothing appropriate for a day outdoors. You will want to wear sturdy shoes to hike around the island, but may want to bring a change of shoes appropriate for the beach. Also be sure to wear a hat and sunscreen.
Registration fees are $50 per teen.
