Meetings and Field Trips

You are welcome to attend monthly meetings, featuring speakers on birding and natural history topics, and including a delicious member-provided evening meal -- with desserts! Our monthly field trips are fun and educational, and focus on locations along the coast, marshes, prairies, and forests of the area.

Announcements:

Future Programs and Field Trips. (ALL TENTATIVE!)

It is not clear how many and which of our normal activities we will be able to put on during the remainder of the year.

We have cancelled our August Membership Meeting and Liberty Field Trip. (If you want to look for the kites yourself, we recommend visiting during the first 10 days or so of August. Try driving along US90 between Liberty and Dayton, perhaps several times, and also visit Liberty Municipal Park.)

During the Covid emergency, we may have to limit the number of participants on Field Trips, or operate as two separate groups so please notify the trip leader at gtaudubon@aol.com of your plan to participate.

Saturday August 27. Field Trip to Bolivar Flats. (TENTATIVE)

Meet at the vehicle barrier at 8:30 a.m. From Winnie, take TX 124 south to High Island. At the shoreline, turn right (west) on TX 87 and proceed through Gilchrist and Crystal Beach until you reach the intersection where Loop 108 turns right (north). Turn left (the opposite way to Loop 108) along Rettilon Road. At the beach, if conditions permit, turn right (west) about 1/2 mile to the vehicle barrier. Follow recent tire tracks, and be careful to avoid any cuts that may have developed. It takes at least one and a half hours to drive from the Golden Triangle. We will leave the vehicle barrier at about 8:45 a.m., although the group will be visually obvious on the flats should you be a few minutes late.

Saturday September 26. Field Trip to Hawk Watch. (TENTATIVE)

If possible within the Chambers County rules, our field trip to it will be on September 26. The Gulf Coast Bird Observatory has indicated that access to the upper deck of the Tower will be limited to official volunteers.
