What: The Nature Discovery Center partners with Houston Audubon to conduct monthly surveys at Willow Waterhole Conservation Reserve, a 290-acre park on the site of a Harris County Flood Control District retention pond project. Participants can help by either spotting birds or helping to identify them on this 2.5 hour long survey. This is a great way to get involved with Houston’s citizen science community. To see the results from past surveys at the site, visit eBird.

Who: These surveys are open to experienced and beginning birders alike. Experienced birders lead groups of participants to try to cover as much of the park as possible.

When: 3rd Saturday of the month year round except December.

Start time: Summer months. (April through September) 7am, Winter months (October through March) 8 am.

Where: Meet in the parking lot of the Gathering Place at 5310 South Willow Drive, Houston TX 77035
