Friday, September 29, 8 am – 6 pm
Mary Ann Beauchemin will lead a fall birding trip for NDC Members to the Smith Point Hawk Watch at the height of raptor migration. This trip will be open to any NDC Member who is age 50 or over by September 29, 2017.
We have scheduled a free Seniors’ bus from Harris County, Precinct 3. Our thanks go to Steve Radack and Harris County, Precinct 3, for providing this service. In order to ride on the bus, county regulations require that you must be at least 50 years old on or before the trip to be eligible to join us.
We will leave at 8 am and will return about 6 pm. As hawks utilize rising thermals from the heated ground to soar, we will not need to arrive at Smith Point until about 9:30 or 10 am. After 2 or 3 pm, when it slows down, we can take a little tour around Smith Point itself to look for other birds and migrating butterflies. If there is time, we’ll move on to Anahuac until it is time to return to the Center.
This popular trip will soon be FULL. If it is full when you go to register, please do join the Wait List online. There are often cancellations as the trip date nears.
