15th Annual Balcones Songbird Festival
April 24-27, 2015
The Balcones Songbird Festival is committed to providing small group focus tours, with leaders of distinction that will provide you with a quality and fun-filled experience. This leads to sell-out tours very quickly, so please plan accordingly. Looking forward to seeing you at the Refuge!
SUMMARY OF EVENTS
All tours (unless otherwise noted) leave by van from the Refuge Headquarters. Please check-in with the REGISTRATION DESK at least 15 minutes before your 1st scheduled tour. If you are also attending the Wings & Wine, you may check-in there. If your trip does not leave from Headquarters, you may check-in at the specified location.
Nature tours will follow the birds, so please come prepared to get off the beaten trail when needed. Closed-toe shoes and long pants are recommended on our walks, due to primitive trail conditions. Be sure to bring your sunscreen and hats!
There are no guarantees with respect to Hill Country weather. WE WILL SEND TOURS OUT REGARDLESS OF RAIN OR TEMPERATURE. Some may be delayed but we will keep the tours within the same day of the event. Call 512 965-2473 for an update, but be prepared to leave on schedule.
Nature Tours are not recommended for children. Please bring them out Sunday afternoon for a full schedule of fun-filled kids activities. (exception-Saturday Advanced Young Birders, 12-18 years).
Don't forget to spend some time in our MarketPlace.
The Refuge is an unimproved, semi-wilderness state. By submitting your registration, you assume full responsibility for all loss, damages, harm, or expenses incurred by you.
