Event details

December can be a great time to be in the woods. The air is crisp and cool, and the leaves are gone from the trees, making birds easier to spot. Join this guided hike to find out what birds use Hickory Creek Preserve in the winter.

This program is for birders of all levels. If you are just starting, this is a great way to get familiar with birds you are likely to find in the winter. Bring binoculars and your favorite bird guide.
