Migratory Bird Festival
May 14 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Mitchell Lake Audubon Center is excited to bring back Migratory Bird Fest as we celebrate spring migration and World Migratory Bird Day with this three-week event. This year, we kick-off the celebration on Earth Day weekend on April 23, followed by three weeks of virtual and in-person workshops, guest lectures, bird tours, and contests. The event concludes on May 14 with a free community festival filled with live birds and animals, games, crafts, vendors, native plant sales, food trucks, pollinator walks and exploration stations.
All proceeds from this event support our mission to connect people to nature and protect the places birds – and humans – need, today and tomorrow. We are able to keep our community festival and select programs free to the public with your support.
“Our wetland habitat is one of the last critical stopover grounds before the Texas Coast, where 98.5% of long-distance migratory bird species in the US pass through, many which are about to fly for hours or days over open ocean. Not only are we one of the best spots for birding in San Antonio, we also open our doors to more than 4,000 students annually for outdoor science and conservation education, which most students do not get in traditional schooling. So, come explore our habitat, walk our native gardens, take a class or a tour, volunteer, or give your support to our education and conservation programs. Whatever your age or interests we have a way to help connect you the wild and beautiful natural place we live, just far enough south of downtown to melt away everyday life.”
