Bird Outing to Flatwoods Park

Saturday, February 25, 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Feel a little iffy on your bird I.D.? Join naturalist and birder, Sandy Belth for a morning of birding at Flatwoods Park. We will go over what to look for while identifying birds. Meet at the Flatwoods Park parking area. Please bring your binoculars if you have them. If not, we will have some available for you to borrow. Wear appropriate footwear, some areas of the park are rather squishy and wet. We will be walking to the far end of the park on mowed trails and through the woods.
