Event details

Wake up early and learn about birds from a naturalist. Birds are migrating for the winter, so let’s set out on a hike to see how many species of birds we can find together.

Bring your binoculars and your favorite field guides. You can also download the Merlin Bird ID by Cornell Lab to your smartphone to help with species identification.


Event requirements

Registration is required by Sunday, Nov. 13: 815-722-4121.

The hike will be about 1 mile long on uneven, natural terrain. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should mention their request when registering, or submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
