April 7: Birds and Brew at Trinity River Audubon Center
Newly Re-Vamped, Social Evening on April 7, 2017
Flock to Trinity River Audubon Center on April 7th for a new take on an old favorite, Birds and Brew! Audubon is partnering up with Bolsa Mercado and Texas Ale Project to produce this fun, informative and social evening.
Guests will have the opportunity to take guided owl prowl night hikes, meet live birds from Window to the Wild, make s’mores, participate in games and fun nature-themed activities, visit with artists, hear lectures from local conservation experts, and have delicious food and drink.
This month’s event features two guest speakers. Audubon’s own Dr. Tania Homayoun will discuss how our lives intersect with birds, share great adventures in birding, and talk about how to get yourself addicted to one of America’s most popular hobbies. Author, conservationist and Environmental Biology Professor Naïma Montacer will join us to give tips and tricks for real life sustainable living. Featured artists include Eddie Brassart of Fort Worth, whose whimsical and witty animal portraits will delight and inspire. Winners from the Trinity River Photography Contest will also be on display, and guests can learn about participating in the contest this year.
Tickets to the event are $40 if purchased in advanced, and $45 at the door. Non-alcoholic tickets are available at the door as well, however this event is for ages $21+. Tickets include all food and activities, a commemorative glass, and 3 standard sized pours of delicious Texas Ale Project beer. For more information, visit trinityriver.audubon.org!
