Bird Survey @ Mercer Botanic Gardens
Jan 27 @ 8:00 am – 10:00 am
Mercer’s gardens and miles of winding riparian forest trails along the Cypress Creek flyway are an ideal place to birdwatch. Led by longtime birder Paul Gregg and Mercer staff member Christy Jones, this monthly bird survey is suited for birders of all levels and experience. Wear comfortable walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing, as Mercer’s 1.7-mile survey loop is primarily crushed asphalt trails.
Participants must be 12 or older. Children younger than 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Meet in front of the Visitor Center at Mercer’s East Side Main Garden.
Bring binoculars, a bird identification guide, water, and insect repellent.
