Join us for a bird walk! These adventures are for both novice birders, and for those more seasoned. Our walk times are listed below, and cover 2 -3 miles over a variety of habitats. Depending on what we see, we are out for 2 to 3 hours. Our expert guides are dedicated bird watchers who know the parks. Please bring binoculars if you have them - for COVID 19 safety at this time, we cannot loan ours. In addition, please bring and wear a mask if you are closer than 6' to someone not from your household.
