Galveston Island Nature Tourism Council is excited to announce that FeatherFest 2014 online registration will begin on December 2. The FeatherFest website is updated with all of the 2014 Birding & Photography Field Trips and Workshops so you have plenty of time to plan your itinerary!
You’ll want to check out some of our new FeatherFest events for 2014 – Ready, Set, Go! –
With more than 100 field trips, workshops and social events, you will have plenty to choose from at FeatherFest 2014. Don’t miss 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 hot spots like Bolivar Flats and High Island.
There will be something for everyone at FeatherFest 2014, whether you’re a novice or an experienced outdoor 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 12, FeatherFest Saturday, kids and their grown-ups can experience our first FledglingFest – four separate activities for ages 6 and up including a birding workshop, a field trip by bus, an outing by boat and a free raptor show!
FOAR will be hosting a booth at this year's FeatherFest in Galveston. The event is sponsored by the Galveston Island Nature Tourism Council. It brings in hundreds, even thousands, or birders and wildlife enthusiast to the upper Texas coast at the peak of bird migration season. Nature field trips from the event travel to locations across the region, including Rail Walks at Anahuac NWR.
