Welcome to Austin!
Austin is known for its great outdoors, both within the city limits and in the nearby rural Texas Hill Country.
Austin is a city that cares deeply about its natural spaces, and that includes the wildlife that calls those spaces home. Austin city council and residents readily support initiatives geared toward protecting birds, and have already enacted permanent Lights Out and World Migratory Bird Day resolutions to protect migrating birds. Birders flock to Austin to enjoy its fantastic birding spots, including internationally renowned Hornsby Bend, a city bio-solids management plant.
More info on birding in Austin can be found on this Visit Austin page.
