Cemetery Bird Walk- City of Austin & Travis Audubon

March 12, 2022 8:30am

This large, historic cemetery is the final resting place of many of Austin’s interesting citizens including the founder of Travis Audubon, Magnolia Greene.

This trip will be co-led by Jennifer Bristol, author of Parking Lot Birding; Travis Audubon Master Birder Mary Ann Robalino; and Caitlen Hill, the Cemetery Programs Manager with Austin Parks and Recreation Department. Paved roads throughout the cemetery make this cemetery accessible for those with mobility challenges.
