First Day Hike: Birding

8:00a to 11:00a
Mon, January 01, 2024
Lisa Cole
(210) 688-9055, x2010

Learn about the fun and excitement of birding, including tips on using binoculars, cameras, field guides and sound recordings.

Members of the Government Canyon Activities Committee welcome anyone interested in our feathered friends for a birding outing. Bring your own equipment or let us know if we can loan you a pair of binoculars when you make your reservation. Volunteers will meet you at the rainwater harvesting tower at the Visitor Center. Dress for the weather and be prepared for sunny conditions. Bring at least one liter of water and a snack if you like. This group will be limited to 8 guests ages 12 and up; participants under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Reservations required! Reserve your spot at the Friends of Government Canyon website. Registration opens on Saturday two weeks prior to the event and closes at noon the Thursday before the event.

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. Please note: reserving a Day Pass is not the same as making a program reservation! The hike is limited to the first 8 participants.

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.
