Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center is hosting The Great Backyard Bird Count on February 15. This annual four day event engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are.
The full event listing on our Texas Mountain Trail regional event calendar, HERE.
CDRI is on the Far West Texas Wildlife Trail map, a project of our Texas Mountain Trail non-profit and TPWD. Below is the entry for CDRI on the map:
"The center sits on 507 acres in the foothills of the Davis Mountains.
The botanical gardens, a protected canyon with perennial springs,
grasslands with mixed desert scrub, and seasonal tanks provide several
habitat zones for birds and bird watching. Hummingbird feeders are
maintained around the center and primarily attract Black-chinned, but
Rufous, Broad-tailed and maybe the occasional Calliope can be seen in
the fall. The center offers many nature programs to the public and
maintains hiking trails on the center’s property."
