Monthly Spotlight is a new virtual outreach program to help people enjoy the beautiful Texas outdoors while adhering to Covid-19 protocols. Each month will be something new and different. We will focus on the belief that conservation is important for Comal County and for Comal County residents especially during social distancing.
We want to keep in touch with all our friends and volunteers so we will have an interactive survey/questionnaire to get your opinions and ideas concerning the monthly topic. AND, please consider suggesting topics that are important to you. This is a work in progress born from the desire to keep everyone safe and healthy during this challenging time.

In addition to those links, our webpage has
a video about how birds communicate,
live cam sites where you can see birds in action,
our comments section for you to share your bird stories,
