You don't have to be an experienced birder to enjoy our tours! As your guides, we will be spotting and identifying the birds that we see, and making sure that you have as much time as you like to enjoy watching them, learning about them, and photographing them. The trips are fun and relaxing, and a great way to enjoy nature with friends and family. We are happy to provide loaner binoculars and field guides.
Tour participants will ride in air-conditioned/heated comfort in our passenger van, where they will be able to get close views of the birds without doing a lot of hiking. These field trips are perfect for those who want to stay out of the weather but still want to enjoy nature, and for those with limited mobility. Please read About Our Tours for more detailed information.
Details on the meeting location will be provided with your registration confirmation. Parking is free unless otherwise noted.
Private tours to these and other locations are also available upon arrangement, including groups or families with younger children. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kristine Rivers at email@example.com or 832-372-8236.
