Nature is thriving with summer in full swing. You can spot any number of native Texas fauna out and about. Right near The Maxwell, there’s even a special trail tucked away where you can bird watch for some exquisitely feathered friends. If you’d like to learn how expert nature photographers manage to capture amazing images of birds in flight or sitting silently in a tree, then you won’t want to miss guided nature walk taking place later this month!
Guided Nature Walk
On July 22nd, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., you can join an expert nature photographer on Taychas Trail. The photographer will provide insight on how to spot, identify, and photograph various birds as they guide you along the leisurely trail. If you’d rather just come to learn a bit more about bird-watching and forgo the camera altogether, that is completely fine! Your photographer will also teach you how to use the iNaturalist app which allows you to record and track your observations, share with others, and even crowdsource identifications as you connect with experts who can help verify the species you’ve seen.
Taychas Trail is an easy 2.2- to 2.5-mile trail in Limestone Quarry Park. This trail features a river and is accessible all year. It’s located by West Rowlett Creek and runs north from Limestone Quarry Park past Rolater Road, to Independence Parkway into the Harold Bacchus Community Park and north to Main Street. It’s a mostly paved trail with some soft dirt trails leading to pretty views of the creek. It also boasts some beautiful wildflowers and lovely trees along the waterway. Leashed dogs are allowed.
After an enjoyable morning spotting local birds and plants, return home to the comfort of your beautifully appointed home at The Maxwell. Contact us today to learn about all of the amenities our community has to offer!
