Event details

Kick off the new year with a hike to get your 2023 bird list started. Join other birders as we learn, explore and search for winter residents in the preserve. This hike highlights birds that spend their winters in the woodlands and fields.

Winter is a great time for birdwatching. With the leaves gone from the trees, the birds are easier to spot, and even in the cold the birds are still active. Bring your binoculars and favorite bird guide. New birders are welcome, as this is an excellent way to increase your bird knowledge.
