Galveston Island Nature Tourism Council is excited to announce that FeatherFest 2016 online registration will begin on December 1. Check out all of our 2016 Birding & Nature Photography Field Trips & Workshops and begin planning your itinerary now!

You’ll want to check out some of our first-time FeatherFest events for 2016 – our pre-festival birding trips to the Historic Lagow Ranch, the Artist Boat Eco-Art Adventure by Kayak at the Coastal Heritage Preserve, Nature Photography with Sean Fitzgerald field trip, the Night HDR field trip with Kathy Adams Clark, and more.

With more than 100 field trips, workshops and special events, you will have plenty to choose from at FeatherFest 2016. Don’t miss one of the largest birding festivals in Texas, and one of the few with a dedicated nature photography track.

Galveston is one of the top locations for birding in the nation, and FeatherFest is held during early spring migration - a great time to visit world-renowned birding hot spots like Bolivar Flats and High Island.

There is something for everyone at FeatherFest 2016, whether you’re a novice or an experienced nature lover. Expert-led excursions by bus and boat will visit a variety of habitats, from beaches to bays, bay marshes to wetlands, and coastal prairies to upland wood motts. On April 16 & 17, kids and their grown-ups can experience FledglingFest – activities designed specifically for ages 6 and up including a Galveston Birding Secrets session, two field trips by bus, a tour of the sea turtle barn and an outing by boat. And don’t forget the free Birds of Prey Raptor show!

Grab a friend and begin planning your FeatherFest adventure today. We look forward to seeing you in April.
