Event details

The early birder gets the birds! Birds are very active in the morning as they wake up and search for food. This makes it a good time to find them. Join us for this guided hike through the open fields, woodlands and creek sides of Hickory Creek Preserve in search of birds.

All skill levels are welcome. This is a great way for beginners to find out what birds are in our area and where they might be found.
