Search for autumn’s birdlife during a walk through Grace Farms’ walking trails with Master Birder Frank Mantlik and Grace Farms Foundation’s Nature Initiative Director, Mark Fowler. Participants of all ages and experience levels are invited to learn more about our local natural world and discover the more than 85 species of birds that thrive on Grace Farms’ 80-acre preserve.
We’ll be walking on mown trails, which may be wet, so please wear appropriate footwear, and dress for the weather.
