Big Tree Bird Walk

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:30am on Friday, repeating until February 22, 2019

Free – $5

Come along with us to view birds at the Big Tree Natural Area!

What will you see beyond the Big Tree? Join us for a hike through the Big Tree Natural Area, an area of the park that is otherwise closed to the public. We’ll observe birds in a variety of habitats including coastal oak forests, coastal prairies, marshes, and bay shorelines. We may even be lucky enough to see an endangered Whooping Crane!

When: 8:30-11:00 A.M.

Where: Check in early at park headquarters to obtain a tour ticket, then meet at the Big Tree parking lot. *There is no restroom available at the Big Tree Natural Area.

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.

*Children must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the program. Program is free with park entrance ($5/person, children 12 & under are free) or Texas State Parks Pass. Program will be cancelled if no participants are present within 10 minutes of the start time, or in the case of inclement weather.
