Event comments

$5 entrance fee in park unless you have a state park pass. Bring binoculars, insect repellent and water. Be on the lookout for Green Jays, Chachalacas, Altamira Orioles, Javelinas, Bobcats, Ocelots (very rare) and other wildlife. There are more than 325 species of birds that may be seen at Bentsen. Wheelchairs and strollers would find these trails a bit challenging. Access to Hawk Tower is a gentle ramp.
