Event details

Demanding a romantic light, the male woodcock waits until dusk before performing his theatrical display. The woodcock “sky dance” is quite a sight to see! We will start the evening learning about the American woodcock, then we’ll take a hike to see if we can catch a glimpse of the male courtship flight.

Can't make it? Join us for another of our Woodcock Walk programs:
