APRIL 15 HISTORIC LOG CABIN, EDITH MOORE NATURE SANCTUARY 440 WILCHESTER (SUBSCRIBERS TO RECEIVE A MAP AND DETAILS) A VISIT TO HOUSTON AUDUBON’S HIGH ISLAND WILDLIFE SANCTUARIES: THE ROOKERY AT SMITH OAKS AND BOY SCOUT WOODS ONE THURSDAY, 8 A.M. – 6 P.M.

John James Audubon observed in the early 1800s that the bird life between Houston and Galveston is the best anywhere in this great country. That observation is still true today. Caroline Callery of the Houston Audubon Society will initiate us on the basics of birding and the species we will see on the trip to High Island. On April 24, we will travel by bus to view the High Island sanctuaries. The rookery is a large nesting site for wading birds and one of the Houston area’s most spectacular sites. A box lunch will be provided.
