The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Event Details

This is a good time to view birds as they come through the area on their way back to their wintering grounds. Join this guided hike to find birds passing through our area. All are welcome, from beginning to experienced birders.

Learn what we are likely to see based on migrations and then head out on the trail to see if we can be rewarded with some good sightings. Please bring along binoculars and dress for the weather. A limited supply of binoculars will be available for loan.
