Free Admission Day at High Island Sanctuaries

We want everyone to experience the beauty of spring bird migration on the Upper Texas Coast. On Saturday, April 6, enjoy free admission to all of Houston Audubon's High Island sanctuaries - Boy Scout Woods, Smith Oaks, Eubanks Woods, and Gast Woods - in addition to TOS Hooks Woods. These sanctuaries are a haven for birds and visitors - we welcome almost 400 species of birds and thousands of visitors from all 50 states and 20+ different countries! On our free admission day, staff and volunteers will be available to answer all your birdy questions. We'll also have birding classes in the Morse Field Station, Flock Talks at the Rookery, and volunteers stationed throughout the McGovern Canopy Walkway to help you find birds! Bring the family out for a beautiful day with the birds.
