Welcome to the website for the 21st Annual Migration Celebration held each spring in southern Brazoria County, Texas. Migration Celebration is presented by the Friends of the Brazoria Wildlife Refuges in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Texas Mid-Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex.
Migration Celebration activities are centered on the San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge but formally start with a fundraising dinner and featured speaker at RiverPlace in the Freeport Municipal Park.
Migration Celebration started as a birding festival with paid events and speakers. However, it has changed over time to a family nature festival. Events and presentations are now designed for more introductory level but still keeps a focus on birds with our Bird Banding, Birds of Prey Shows, Rocket Netting and Nature Walks at Bobcat Woods and the San Bernard Oak Trail.
With the exception of fundraising activities, all other Migration Celebration events, tours, presentations, and other 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.
