Galveston FeatherFest & Nature PhotoFest
April 9, 2015 - April 12, 2015
With more than 100 field trips, workshops and social events, you will have plenty to choose from at FeatherFest 2015, one of the largest birding festivals in Texas, and one of the few with a dedicated nature photography track.
Galveston is one of the top locations for birding in the nation, and FeatherFest is held during early spring migration — a great time to visit world-renowned birding hotspots like Bolivar Flats and High Island.
There is something for everyone at FeatherFest 2015, whether you’re a novice or an experienced nature lover. Expert-led excursions by bus and boat will visit a variety of habitats, from beaches to bays, bay marshes to wetlands, and coastal prairies to upland wood motts. On April 11 & 12, kids and their grown-ups can experience FledglingFest – activities designed specifically for ages 6 and up including a Galveston Birding Secrets session, two field trips by bus, a tour of the sea turtle barn and an outing by boat. And don’t forget the free Birds of Prey Raptor show!
