Event details

Summer days are warm, and it is best to get out in the morning before it gets too hot. Join us on this early-morning hike on the trails of Hickory Creek Preserve to find birds in the preserve. We will find many species as we walk through prairie, woodland and riverside habitats.

Beginners are welcome and encouraged as this is a great way to gain birding knowledge.
