The Alpine/Fort Davis area of the Davis Mountains is one of the premier birding locations in Texas and just a short 3-hours trip from El Paso. It is also one of the most beautiful places in Texas and well worth a visit. On this trip, you will visit some of the best places for birding. These include the Davis Mountains State Park, the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center, Oasis at Post Park and others. Each participant will be responsible for his or her food, lodging and transportation. Carpooling is encouraged. Our base will be in Alpine, Texas, and a list of hotels for you to choose from will be provided. A list of accommodations will also be posted on the events page on www.celebmtns.org. Those wishing to attend the McDonald Observatory Star Party on Saturday night will need to make their own reservations and arrange transportation.
