Whether you are just beginning or are an experienced birder, you will want to join along in this hike as we search the preserves for spring migrants. We start with a quick presentation on what species we can expect to find in our area at this time of year, and then head out on the trail to find them with a naturalist as our guide. Bring along binoculars or your favorite field guide and dress for the weather. The hike will be between 1 and 1.5 miles over uneven terrain.
