Event details

Spring is right around the corner, but the birds have already started to head back our way. Join other birders on this guided hike as we look for early spring migrants in the preserve. The leaves are not out yet, which will help us spot some of the early birds of the season.

This is a great time to get out and get started birding before the major migration in the coming months. Bring binoculars and your favorite bird guide. New birders are welcome as this is an excellent way to increase bird knowledge.
