Birding with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension
The goal of Birding with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is to connect people to the land through the experience of birding, thus fostering an interest in conservation of natural resources. Our programs including learning to bird for youth and adults, backyard bird habitat management, and birding experiences. Our feature birding experience is Birding the Border, based in Val Verde County, Texas.
A program for new and beginning birders to take their skills to the next level! Join us in beautiful Val Verde County for a weekend of birding led by a professional guide, great volunteers, and AgriLife Extension faculty. Held October 23-25, space is limited.
A free, online workshop for Texas science and ag teachers grades 7-12 to learn about bird identification, sustainable agriculture, and habitat management, and how these relate to one another. Held July 27-31, space is limited.
Due to COVID-19, we had to cancel Birding the Border 2020. We were so bummed, but we still connected birders with landowners, scientists, and conservationists – click the logo to access the archived Virtual Birding Seminars!
This is a unique Texas birding experience that connects birders with landowners! At Birding the Border, participants get access to private ranches and other restricted sites as we search for a wide variety of species. Join us April 29 – May 2, 2021!
