7:45 pm - 8:45 pm
Pershing Middle School
Join us for our family-friendly ‘Swift Night Out’ events in the fall. Watch chimney swifts swoop and soar over their roosts and then count them as they enter their chimneys. Mark your calendars to come help us with this citizen science project to document the numbers of chimney swifts migrating through Houston.
What to bring: A folding chair if you prefer to sit, and mosquito repellent! Binoculars are optional (the swifts are visible with the naked eye as they enter the chimney).
Swift Night Out at Pershing Middle School
Co-sponsored by the Nature Discovery Center, Houston Audubon Society, Whole Foods Market-Bellaire, and Pershing Middle School.
Date: Friday, August 24
Time: 7:45 pm
Location: Meet us in the Pershing Middle School parking lot. Use the parking lot entrance off of Stella Link, just south of Bellefontaine St. Go to the back of the parking lot on the north side of the school and look for the big chimney. At the end of August and early September we typically count over 500 Chimney Swifts at this location.
Whole Foods Market-Bellaire will provide refreshments.
