Welcome to Bird City!

Art by Darrell Mitchell Jr.

Enjoy our 2022 collection of art and writing entries from the FeatherFest contest, “Welcome to Bird City!”. Children in grades 1-8 were asked to consider what a Bird City looks like to them and think about the possibilities for their real or imagined Bird City. Then, take their ideas, real or imaginary, and combine them with art and/or writing skills to create an artwork, story, poem, letter, or essay to enter in the contest. 

Many thanks to all of the young writers and artists who shared their talents in this competition.

Our FledglingFest program is sponsored by The John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation.

Galveston Certified as Bird City Texas Community

Galveston has taken wing once again, earning designation as a Bird City Texas community! We’re one of three Texas cities to achieve the prestigious hallmark this year. Thank you to our dedicated team, partners and advisors who helped make this happen.

Bird City Texas is an initiative of Audubon Texas and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The community-focused certification program was created to help protect birds and their habitats where people live, work, and recreate.

Bird City Texas research shows that bird-friendly environments increase property values, help control insects and generate tourism dollars.
