Mission Dolores State Historic Site
Head down to Mission Dolores State Historic Site on Saturday, June 3rd for a morning of birdwatching and crafting activities!
From 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., children will have the opportunity to observe some of the diverse bird species that inhabit East Texas. After an intro to bird watching along our nature trail, kids can construct their own bird houses and feeders from recyclables to attract birds to watch in their own backyards.
The priests that established Mission Dolores followed the teachings of St. Francis, who was known for his dutiful care and observations of even the smallest animals. At this program, we will follow in his footsteps, observing the birds of Mission Dolores and helping care for them by building feeders and houses.
