This event's general sponsors are the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy, the San Antonio Parks & Recreation Department's Nature Areas, the Alamo Area Master Naturalists, and the Alamo Group of the Sierra Club. Special sponsors include the Bexar Audubon and SA Audubon. Its purposes include appreciating the beauty of the natural area, observing how nature changes through the seasons, and learning on the topical focus of each walk. Birds are the focus of this walk and we have three area birders to regale you with their knowledge: Alan & Patsy Kuentz and Lora Reynolds. This will give you a chance to see (hopefully), identify, and appreciate the most common birds in the area.
Please bring bird books and/or binoculars if you happen to have them.
Please meet by 8:00am SHARP to sign up for a 8:10am departure. We will walk along various trails, sidewalks, and parking areas close to the UEC conducive to sighting birds. There will be brief explanations at the start and along the way with ample time for participant questions.
Minors only when accompanied by an adult parent/guardian. Dogs allowed if leashed and socialized. DIFFICULTY: Easy, definitely suitable for families. Flat terrain, slow-paced. This will only be about a mile of walking and last about two hours ending back at the Urban Ecology Center around 10:15 am.
The trail is a natural surface so be sure to wear sturdy shoes and, dependent on the weather, bring water, sun protection, and dress appropriately for the day and season. Suggested $3 individual or $5 family donations to the PHP Conservancy to support enhancements to the park.
