Birding the San Antonio River with Mark Menjívar

Join us at Camp Hot Wells for Birding the San Antonio River with Mark Menjívar on Sunday, May 19, 9:00 – 11:00AM and learn about local and migrating birds seen along the San Antonio River.

Birding is about so much more than just birds. It is about looking, listening, and exploring. It is about imagination, color, texture, songs, movement and more! Artist Mark Menjívar has partnered with the San Antonio River Foundation to lead a  bird walk to teach adults and children of all ages how to identify birds found in habitats surrounding Confluence Park and the Mission Reach Ecosystem Restoration and Recreation Project of the San Antonio River, the largest Urban Ecosystem Restoration Project in the country.

Birding the San Antonio River with Mark Menjívar is free and open to the public with free parking provided at Hot Wells. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable, close-toed shoes, and bring a reusable water bottle. Binoculars will be provided.
