Dripping Springs is dedicated to the preservation of our local and migratory bird populations. Our commitment is evident in many of our parks and programs. We have several bird blinds and continue to foster gatherings of bird-centric individuals through our guided bird walks and fun events. Check back here often to learn how you can participate in and enjoy the world of birding! Our events calendar below is being updated for 2020 and will display all of the activities and events for passionate and novice bird enthusiasts alike.

While Dripping Springs has not yet been chosen as a designated Bird City Texas community we are aspiring to get there and will be submitting our application once more for the 2020 deadline. This year the Bird City application team consists of a collaborative effort between the following community stakeholders:

  • Destination Dripping Springs - Dripping Springs Visitors Bureau Staff
  • City of Dripping Springs Parks & Community Services, Communications & Maintenance Staff
  • City of Dripping Springs Parks & Recreation Commissioner
  • Wild Birds Unlimited
  • Hays County Master Naturalists

The program timeline is depicted below.

The City of Dripping Springs is a proud home to some of the more diverse bird communities and bird watching areas. As a community we strive to protect the species we share a home with. Charro Ranch Park is a great location to begin birding as we have designated areas designed with birders in mind as well as protective structures to help out the endangered species in our area! Dripping Springs Ranch Park also has area set aside for birders to enjoy their evenings listening to their soothing songs along with gorgeous trails to get you there. Relax and enjoy!
