Was that a kinglet, or a kingbird? Learn how you can add birding to your outdoor skills set.

Birding is an activity that people of all ages can enjoy while contributing to citizen science projects that are used by land managers and researchers all over the world. A park ranger will show you the basics of bird identification, share some helpful hints and tools, and lead a short, guided bird walk. Ages 8 and up. Minors must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. No pets, please. We will provide some binoculars to share but please bring your own if you have them.

Registration is NOT required. Though the activity is free, entrance fees to the Natural Area do apply. We often fill to capacity. To ensure entrance and save time at the Fee Booth, please pre-purchase and print out a day pass. Day passes can be reserved beginning one month before the date of your visit.

Meet in the Exhibit Gallery, next to the Visitor Center. Lot A will have the closest parking.  

Dress for hiking outdoors, in layers that can be added or removed as the weather changes. Comfortable shoes, sunscreen, and a hat are recommended. Bring at least 32 oz of water per person.

If ADA assistance is required, please request modifications using this form, or email accessibility@tpwd.texas.gov at least 2 weeks in advance.

This program is weather-dependent and subject to cancellation. Check trail conditions by calling GCSNA's main office at 210-688-9055, or go to the GCSNA webpage, Instagram, or Facebook.
