In honor of our 50th anniversary, we’re hosting the first-ever Houston Bird Week! Equal parts fun, education, and celebration, experience firsthand the important role Houston plays in the journey of billions of migratory birds, and the everyday life of our urban-dwelling birds. Led by Houston Audubon’s Young Professionals Advisory Council in collaboration with local conservation partners, we have a flock of fun planned for all.

Don’t miss our kickoff party, where we’ll be unveiling our official Bird Beer in collaboration with Bakfish Brewing Co and announcing the Bird of Houston! From pop-up birding stations to park clean-ups and bioblitzes, your participation and excitement will help us continue to be a welcoming home for Houston’s birds. We'll end the week with a Birthday Bash to celebrate Houston Audubon's 50th anniversary and the conclusion of Bird Week, so mark your calendars for a week of fun! 

Let’s get chirping on social media. Use #HoustonBirdWeek to share your excitement! 


Some events may require registration.
