Event details

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and it’s a perfect spring morning for birding. Join a naturalist on a morning walk in the woods to see whose feathers we can spot. Expect to see migratory birds making their way through the preserve and summer residents returning home.

Bring your binoculars and field guides to see who we can discover. This program will be geared toward beginner and intermediate birders.
