Visitors are invited to join a ranger for an introduction to the world of birding on Wednesday, July 13 from 8 a.m. - 11 a.m. Summer is hot but it is breeding time for many of the dozens of bird species that lay eggs, raise babies, and teach their young how to eat and fly here at Port Hudson. Birding has been a pastime for centuries. We want to introduce new audiences, novice birders and anyone with an interest to the world of birding. No previous experience required. You will learn some of the basics of birdwatching and we have a few sets of binoculars to loan. For further information call 225-654-3775.
