Tired of winter? So are our feathered friends, who will soon be arriving at a site near you, looking for breeding territories, and broadcasting their desirability to prospective mates. It's a noisy, colorful show.

Join our naturalist to learn techniques for identifying, describing, and remembering each bird you see. You will also learn facts about different birds and have your many bird questions answered.

Program Details

Adults only please

This program will be 2 -3 hours long with an option to stay after for a brown bag lunch (not provided).

Part of the hike will take place on Van Bibber Creek Trail and then continue up a soft surface trail up a moderate hill.
