Galveston FeatherFest takes flight April 9-12, 2015

GINTC’s signature project is the Island’s annual birding and nature photography festival held the second weekend in April during early spring migration. Galveston is one of the top locations in the country for birding because it hosts a wide variety of habitats in a small geographical area where some 300 species make their permanent or temporary home throughout the year. Mark your calendar now to attend the largest birding festival on the Upper Texas Coast, and the only one with a dedicated nature photography track!

The 13th Annual FeatherFest will be held April 9-12, 2015.
