Our Early Birders Morning Walk on June 7 was amazing! Not the highest species count, but possibly the highest birder count. Ali Wagner led the walk (and she will lead the next two also), and she is one terrific birder. Attendees ranged from brand-new to birding to decades of experience.
Thank you again to Mae for eBirding the results.

Join us for the next one or more, every Sunday through the end of June. You can see from our records that we have experienced birders leading the walks (and attending) but beginners are welcome!! Our trails are moderate—plus we have both an accessible tree house and an indoor viewing window if you prefer an even more relaxed pace.
Finish the walk with bird-friendly coffee at the viewing window inside the Museum.
Bring binoculars and good walking shoes. Park at 900 Sherman Hollow Road, in the Museum parking lot.
Best for adults and older children • Free, donations welcome.
