“Our mission to connect people to nature is more important now than ever before,” Center Director Sara Pruneda Beesley said. “San Antonio is a city on the rise, and spending time outdoors—in our natural green spaces—keeps people connected to something bigger. We understand cost is a barrier to getting outside in protected areas. Partnering with Live From the Southside is our first step to removing that barrier by offering discounted entry for families and anyone who wants to explore the outdoors and learn more about birds. It also allows people to explore all the south side of San Antonio – everything from our ecological treasures to great food and culture.”

April Monterrosa, the owner of Live From the Southside, is kicking off her term as board chair of Mitchell Lake Audubon Center by sponsoring a “Southside Summer at Mitchell Lake.” For July and August, everyone can enjoy free entry for up to four people when the discount code “SouthsideSummer23″ is used at checkout.

Mitchell Lake Audubon Center is the recipient of 2022 City of San Antonio bond funding and will be open and free to the public after the infrastructure improvements to the site are complete in 2028. This summer is an opportunity to experience the wildlife refuge before construction begins.

To reserve free tickets starting July 1, visit the Mitchell Lake Audubon Center ticketing website.
