Free Event

Join Ranger Lisa, a self-proclaimed bird nerd for some of the basics on Galveston Island birding. We’ll meet at the Nature Center and take an easy stroll with some binoculars and a scope to catch our winged friends in the park. This short introductory program will review the important skills of bird watching, describe the top birds in the park, and give visitors a chance to find birds on a short trail hike. Everyone is invited for this easy hike, but pets must be on leash. Binoculars available for use. No RSVP necessary. Meet at the Nature Center on the bay side of the park after paying your entry fee into the park.

What to bring:

  • Binoculars
  • Bird guide or reference book
  • Water
  • Comfortable shoes
  • Bug spray
