Ages for which our activities are most appropriate: 
Our wetland habitat is one of the last critical stopover grounds before the Texas Coast, where 98.5% of long-distance migratory bird species in the US pass through, many which are about to fly for hours or days over open ocean. Not only are we one of the best spots for birding in San Antonio, we also open our doors to more than 4,000 students annually for outdoor science and conservation education, which most students do not get in traditional schooling. So, come explore our habitat, walk our native gardens, take a class or a tour, volunteer, or give your support to our education and conservation programs.


Mitchell Lake strives to be the go-to place in San Antonio for outdoor, STEM-based education. In addition to getting kids outdoors to learn about science hands-on, we hold native plant workshops for your garden or porch, birding tours for the novice or experienced birder, and even a day-long festival for the entire family.

Our goal is that you come take a breath of fresh air and enjoy your time at Mitchell Lake Audubon Center. Learn a little, play a little, and breathe a little more fresh air. Time in nature has been shown to lower stress levels. So come on by, relax, and watch the birds.
