Walk the shores of Goose Island with a knowledgeable volunteer. What species will you see this time?

Join volunteer Bob Showler on a walk along the shore in search of Goose Island's iconic shorebirds. You can expect to learn about and identify birds seen on the route. Bob has been volunteering with the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, and we're excited to add more birding opportunities for everyone!

This program does NOT utilize the tram, so there will be some walking. No registration required. This program is for both novice and experienced birders.

Bring: Binoculars, water, comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, camera, and weather-appropriate clothing. The park offers a limited number of binoculars available for loan, but it is best to bring your own.
