Bird City Bastrop is hosting monthly BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY HIKES every 2nd Friday from 8:30-10:00am at different parks and trails around Bastrop County.
We'll always have a pro-birder and experienced photographer leading the hikes because it's just more fun that way! We're always encouraging uploading bird pics to iNaturalist and/or eBird.
Here are our upcoming walks and locations:
  • Friday, October 8th - Dragonfly Trail at Colorado River Refuge
  • Friday, November 12th - the newly named Dorothy Skarnulis Trail at Pecan Park
