Description:

For the April installment of the Nature Calgary Speakers Series, Bev Kissinger will present “More Than Birds In Texas:

From wide open skies to the Rio Grande River, Southern Texas is a naturalists’ dream.  From snakes and lizards to birds and butterflies, there is no better way to taste the Rio Grande Valley than attending the Rio Grande Bird Festival in Harlingen Texas.  Join Bev Kissinger as she entices you with the tales of adventures and nature from the 2016 Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival experience.

Please note that Nature Calgary general meetings and the bird study group meetings are free to Nature Calgary members as well as for non-members who are attending for the first time.  Non-members who attend a meeting for the second or more times are asked to pay a nominal fee of $5.00 per event.

Note that Nature Calgary’s monthly Speaker Series general meetings will be held on the third Tuesday of each month this year, at Cardel Theatre, in the southeast area of Quarry Park.  This fabulous new theatre-style hall has been made available to non-profit organizations at very low cost by Cardel Foundations. Because of this, the Foundations would appreciate participants’ donations of non-perishable food for the Calgary Food Bank, placed in their Food Bank Box in the theatre lobby.

Cardel Theatre’s address is 180 Quarry Park Blvd SE, a short distance south of Carburn Park. There is ample free parking.
