Title: GCBO Xtreme Hummingbird Xtravaganza Open House
Event Link: Click here
Description: Autumn is hummingbird season in Texas, as thousands of these tiny creatures move through the state on their southward migration to Mexico and Central America. Many Ruby-throats will travel 600 miles straight across the Gulf to the Yucatan Peninsula while others will fly around the edges of the Gulf to points in Mexico.
Join us Saturdays in September from 8:00 to 12:00 for our Xtreme Hummingbird Xtravaganza. You can watch hummingbird banding, adopt a hummingbird, browse the Nature Store, walk the nature trails, or buy a plant to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Each Saturday, a different informative lecture will round out the festivities.
See the GCBO webpage for more details. We need some “gung ho” volunteers to help with this event. If you are interested, contact Reba Craft. We will also be collecting used cell phones, PDAs, digital cameras and ipods for Recycling For Charities (see below) at XHX so bring your used electronics by and let GCBO recycle them for you.
Start Time: 08:00
End Time: 12:00
