Barkley Meadows Park runs along the Onion Creek Greenway and is a relatively new park in Southeastern Travis County. Its gentle topography is typical of our Blackland Prairie and offers a variety of habitats including a riparian corridor, ponds, woodlands and open fields. There are good trails, so expect to walk about two miles. Winter sparrows and water fowl are expected birds. George Kerr, Celeste Treadway and Judith Bailey will be your leaders. Portable toilets are available.
The Beginners’ Bird Walk is held on the first Saturday of each month and is open to birders of all levels and ages. It’s free. It’s fun. Membership is not required. Registration is not required. Need binoculars? We’ve got loaners. The location is different each month.
