Join Master Birder, Frank Mantlik, and Grace Farms Foundation’s Nature Initiative Director, Mark Fowler, for a guided walk of Grace Farms’ Walking Trails in search of the spectacular birds migrating north for the summer. Birdwatchers of all ages and experience are invited to learn more about our local natural world and discover the species that make Grace Farms their home.
We’ll be walking on mown trails, which may be wet, so please wear appropriate footwear, dress for the weather, and bring your binoculars.
Spring Migration birdwatching walks are offered on Saturdays, May 4, May 11, May 18, and May 25. To learn more about our Nature Initiative and commitment to restoring wild, read our blog on Pollinators.
