  • This event has passed.

Hall’s Bayou Ranch encompasses over 25,000 acres of private land that begins at Halls Lake near Alvin TX and flows southeasterly into West Galveston Bay. It is somewhat secluded and open only to members and, starting this year, FeatherFest. Operated for farming and ranching in the early days (founded in 1943), management changed the focus to hunting, fishing and a strong dedication to habitat development and conservation. This bayou is host to tens of thousands of waterfowl in the winter attracted by extensive beds of wild celery. Part of the Galveston Bay western estuary, Hall’s Bayou is a welcome corridor for migrants featuring freshwater and saltwater habitat. Passerines forage on native grasses and open tree lines of secluded live oak. Shorebirds and waterbirds work the tides of the marsh. The area draws its share of raptors, too, to the open ranch.

This exciting first time offering is limited to only 10 registrants.

Driving directions to the meeting site will be emailed prior to the festival.
