The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is holding a multi-day birding workshop Oct. 7-11 in Fredericksburg.
Birding the Hills will be limited to 15 participants. Online registration is available. The total cost is $850, with $500 required to reserve a spot.
The cost includes lunch and dinner while in the field and transportation to and from the birding locations in the Edwards Plateau ecoregion. Departures each morning will be from the AgriLife Extension office in Gillespie County, 95 Frederick Road, Fredericksburg.
Workshop highlights include a welcome dinner, three full-days of birding, photography opportunities at a private ranch acclaimed by nature photographers and access to private lands, some of which have never been birded before. There will also be educational presentations during lunch.
Participants are encouraged to register and then book accommodations immediately due to the high demand in Fredericksburg year-round. A list of hotels, recommended items to pack and additional details are available by contacting Grant at 830-774-7591 or Roeder at 830-997-3452.
Through the application of science-based knowledge, AgriLife Extension creates high-quality, relevant continuing education that encourages lasting and effective change.
