Tyler Audubon Society is devoted to the enjoyment and safekeeping of the natural world. Through the participation in birding, education and conservation ventures, we encourage East Texans to join us in our mission.
The primary objective of the Tyler Audubon Society is to create an awareness of the natural world's beauty and problems by promoting an appreciation of birds, other wildlife and habitat, to promote an awareness of the environmental problems of the past, present and future, and to find solutions for these problems.

Saturday, February 2, 2013. Lake Tawakoni for loons, gulls and longspurs. Richard Kinney will lead this trip to look for loons, ducks, gulls and longspurs at the Van Zandt county boat ramp, the Holiday Marina, Lake Tawakoni State Park and other locations around the lake. This will be a 4-6 hr trip. There will be easy walking at the State Park and minimal walking at other locations. There are bathrooms at the state park and at Holiday Marina. Bring food, snacks, drinks, and water, as there aren't places to buy food. Depending on weather, it can be cool (or cold) and windy near the lake.
