Event details

The trails may be snowy and cold, but the birds will be out. Join other birders as we learn, explore and search for winter residents in the preserve. This hike will highlight birds that spend their winters in Hickory Creek Preserve. Winter is a great time for birdwatching. With the leaves gone from the trees, the birds are easier to spot. Even in the cold the birds are still active. Bring your binoculars and a favorite bird guide. New birders are welcome as this is an excellent way to increase bird knowledge.
