Ninth Annual Galveston FeatherFest Set for April 7 – 10, 2011
The Best of Spring Migration Birding and Photography
GALVESTON ISLAND, Texas (Aug. 16, 2010) – Galveston Island, one of the top locations for birding in the nation, will host the ninth annual FeatherFest from April 7 through 10, 2011. All ages will enjoy unique outdoor adventures amid more than 200 species of birds in an area steeped in Texas charm, history and hospitality.
There’s no better time to visit world-renowned birding hot spots Bolivar Flats and High Island than during spring migration. FeatherFest offers nature excursions by bus, boat or kayak to a variety of habitats, from beaches to bays, bay marshes to wetlands, and coastal prairies to upland wood motts. PhotoFest, a dynamic track of photography field trips and workshops, returns after last year’s near sell-out debut.
The festival is a project of the Galveston Island Nature Tourism Council, which supports eco-tourism and education, and promotes the value of area natural habitats. Visit www.galvestonfeatherfest.com or call 832-459-5533 or 1-888-425-4753 for more information.
