Join Travis Audubon and The Trail Conservancy to find birds and observe their behavior on the new section of the Butler Trail, the Holly Trailhead, historically part of the decommissioned Holly Power Plant at Festival Beach. Recently planted native trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and natural spring water dominate the landscape and provide excellent habitats for many different species of birds. As TTC restores this new section of the trail, we will see a change of birds, so you’ll want to come on this monthly walk.

This bird walk is ideal for beginners, but all levels are welcome. We have binoculars to lend to anyone that doesn’t have a pair. Our walk will total 1-2 miles in about 3 hours, making our way through the Holly Trail and adjacent to Lady Bird Lake to listen to and look for resident birds, migrants, and flyovers. The terrain is mostly flat (dissolved gravel trail and sidewalks) and there is ADA accessibility at the Holly Trail Overlook.  In winter, we will take a stop at the Holly Trail overlook section of the trail a bit to watch the waterfowl.

Registration is required and is limited to 10 participants. A reminder email will be sent with pertinent details before the field trip. For questions, contact Rachel at rachel.zierzow@gmail.com.
