Hornsby Bend Bird Observatory
Hornsby Bend is open to the public seven days a week from dawn to dark. Because we are a wastewater facility, all visitors must present an ID at the main gate to enter the site. The Center for Environmental Research building is open 7am-6pm every day, and restrooms are available there. Construction near the ponds continues so please see Location Map and Construction/Access Changes under the Birding Tab to understand where access may be limited.
