Registration for BirdFest Texoma will begin on January 1, 2013 for events set to take place at Hagerman NWR May 3 -5, 2013. The birding and nature festival will feature nationally known author/illustrator/birding expert, David Allen Sibley, as well as Jonathan Wood’s Raptor Project, photography workshops, three days of field trips, nature walks and talks, programs for children and more. Descriptions of all events can be found on the Friends website.
Both online and standard registration forms will be available. For online registration or to download forms, see birdfesttexoma.org; registration forms will also be available in the Nature Nook at the Refuge. There is a fee for field trips, the photography events and Sibley’s keynote presentation; however many events are free of charge, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. Members of the Friends of Hagerman will note special member pricing on paid events. Most events have a limited number of spaces available so early registration is advised, for both paid and free events.
