60 Years of Birding at Hornsby Bend Celebration

Join us in celebrating the 60th anniversary of birding at Hornsby Bend with a full day of activities for all levels of birders. The day will begin with the start of a day-long Super Bird Survey. We will have free birding field trips in the morning and afternoon – and a special morning field trip which will be led by young birders. Throughout the day, there will be information tables and activities in the Austin Water Center for Environmental Research culminating at 4:00 PM in food and an evening program about 60 years of Hornsby Bend birds and birders including a photography presentation by Greg Lasley.

To find Hornsby look here.
Hornsby is just east of the Austin airport north on FM 973, about a mile north of the Colorado River bridge.  It is on the west side of the road.
Meet field trips at the Center for Environmental Research (administrative office) which is the office building on the right just after you go through the guard gate at the entrance to the property. Field trip leaders will either be right inside the entrance or outside in the parking lot. Allow a little extra time to get to Hornsby so try to arrive 15 minutes before your field trip is scheduled.
There are restrooms on site  – always handy before and after a field trip.
