Event details

Winter will officially be here soon, but it is still a good time to get out and look for birds in the preserve. Monee Reservoir is a great place for birds to stop by or spend the winter. Join in this guided hike to find out what birds use Monee Reservoir. This program is for all levels of birders. If you are just starting, this is a great way to get familiar with birds you are likely to find in the fall. Bring binoculars and your favorite bird guide.
