Shangri La is offering an early-morning, adults-only bird watching tour along Adams Bayou on Thursday, April 13. The botanical gardens and nature center will even provide binoculars and field guides for beginning birders.
Sarah Boehme, curator of the Stark Museum of Art, will accompany the tour and discuss the famous 19th Century bird artist and naturalist John James Audubon. The Stark Museum of Art has a rare complete copy of Audubon's "The Birds of America."
Reservations will be needed for the birding tour and a $10 fee will include a boxed breakfast and coffee. The gates at the gardens will open at 7 a.m. for the tour and the boat will leave the dock at 7:30 a.m. For more information, call Shangri La at 409-670-9113.
