Purpose: This Ornithological Society is a group of friends of all ages in Galveston County, Texas, who share a love for learning about birds.

Programs: They have meetings and classes and birding trips like the Water Bird Workshop or Shorebird Seminar. Members have day and overnight field trips to observe birds in their natural setting. The Society offers several trips away from Galveston during each year. Participants have gone to far away bird hot spots such as Venezuela, Arizona, South Texas, Florida, Alaska, the Yucatan, the Galapagos and many other locations. Additional trips planned for the future include Africa, Tierra del Fuego and Cape May.

Membership: It’s easy to join the Galveston Ornithological Society and it’s free. Just email Jim and you can also receive his bird pictures and commentary.

Publications: Galveston Bay’s first nature newspaper, “GULLS n HERONS”, is the inspiration of The Galveston Ornithological Society. Informative and instructive articles on nature, such as bird watching, reptiles, fishing, etc., are included in all issues, and it includes color pictures of Gulf Coast birds and other creatures.
