Get ready to experience an avian adventure with Houston Audubon at Houston Audubon’s Raptor and Education Center in Southeast Houston. We will take a 90 minute tour which includes up-close encounters with the raptors at the center, presentation in the Bayou Barn, and guided hike to Sims Bayou. This is a one-of-a kind opportunity to take some amazing close-up images of rehabilitated owls, ospreys, falcons & hawks who were unable to return to the wild due to their injuries. Bringing along a 50mm lens will be helpful when taking photos of the birds of prey. However a telephoto lens may be helpful as we take a hike to Sims Bayou.

    Hi Lana,
    I am moving next weekend and am concerned that registering for the raptor excursion will slip my mind, but I am VERY interested in coming. Can you hold me a place or text me to remind me to register? My cell is 281-804-5714 and my new address, effective 2/1 is 3333 Allen Parkway, #2604, Houston, 77019. Are you still in the Rochow studio? I am a hop, skip and a jump away at the Royalton!

    Hope all is well!
    Marcia Levetown
