Galveston FeatherFest Birding & Nature Photography Festival

April 20, 2023 - April 23, 2023


Mark your calendars to attend Galveston Island’s 21st FeatherFest Birding & Nature Photography Festival during the peak of spring migration. Galveston is one of the top locations in the country for birding because it hosts a diverse variety of habitats in a small geographical area where some 300 species make their permanent or temporary home throughout the year.

Choose from 100+ expert-led birding and nature photography activities to beach, bay, Bolivar Flats, High Island, and more! Go by bus, boat, kayak, electric bike, or drive your own vehicle for our meet-at-site trips.

Come experience spring migration, area charm, history, and hospitality in Galveston.

Pre-festival field trips to be announced.
