In 2018, Greg Whittaker embarked on a yearlong survey of Moody Gardens 240 acre property with the intent to showcase the diversity of species that use the habitats or can be viewed from Moody Gardens throughout the year. The adjacent 170 acre golf course was added to the surveys in late January 2018 and the project was informally called the “410 acre year”. Through October, the combined 240 surveys yielded 210 species.
Join Greg at Moody Gardens Golf Course for an hour of “chasing birdies”. The group will drive carts to 4 of the more scenic and birdy habitats the course has to offer. From there, everyone will meet at Moody Gardens for a guided walking tour of the Moody Gardens complex.
