Open to the public one day only
Saturday morning, April 13th
Once a year, the public is invited to a nature preserve that is home to one of Central Texas' rarest creatures - the Golden-cheeked Warbler.
Located northwest of Austin, Baker Sanctuary is a 690-acre tract of virtually untouched natural habitat. The property is unique in that it remains one of the only places in the world where the Golden-cheeked Warbler nests and breeds. Only 27 counties in Texas are known to support this endangered songbird. The Golden-cheeked Warbler relies on the specific conditions found at Baker Sanctuary to survive in a world where rapid urbanization poses an increasing threat to its habitat.
Once a year, Baker Sanctuary opens to the public for guided tours. Trail walks this year will focus on Golden-cheeked Warblers, butterflies, plants, insects and the supporting habitat. Kids will take part in bird-related activities, including bird identification, making pine cone bird feeders, native seed activity and competing in games like a bird bean bag toss.
Admission is free! Enjoy a free lunch from 11:30 to 12:30. Visitors should bring their own water bottles to be refilled on site.
