  • overview
    Migration Celebration is held annually during the month of April in Southern Brazoria County, Texas.
    Migration Celebration is aĀ U.S. Fish and Wildlife ServiceĀ event from theĀ Texas Mid-coast National Wildlife Complex, and is underwritten by theĀ Friends of the Brazoria Wildlife Refuges.

    Migration Celebration activities are centered around a two-day, activity packed event on theĀ San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge, but formally begin with a featured speaker and fundraising dinner at Freeport RiverPlace, located at the Freeport Municipal Park in Freeport, Texas.

    Migration Celebration began as a birding festival, but has grown over time into a family nature festival; with events and presentations designed for more introductory level participation. However, several trail and van tours offer excellent birding opportunities for all experience levels and ages.

    With the exception of the fundraising kickoff dinner and the food and bake sales on event days, all other Migration Celebration events, tours, presentations, and activities are free to the public. This is made possible by the generous donations of time and money by our sponsors, partner organizations, and volunteers.

    The Migration Celebration is held during peak bird migration seasonĀ at the San Bernarnd National Wildlife Refuge. The two-day event includes several free activities for childrenĀ including: archery, fishing, BB gun range, bug sweeping, microscopes, touch tanks and reptiles.
