Nature Hike

Date: November 12, 2017
Time: 2:00 PM

Early November is a time between fall color and the winter snows beginning. Winter resident birds have arrived and animals have slowed down and moved into their winter modes. With the leaves off of the trees this is a great time to look for bird nests and some signs of insect activity that may have been hidden by the leaves of summer. This is a general nature hike where we will look for birds and other items of interest and talk about what transitions are taking place in the woods and fields as winter approaches.

Naturalist Craig Elston will lead all walks, sharing information about the natural features and helping you to learn to indentify many species. All walks will begin from the parking area at the end of New Holland Ave., east of 32nd Ave.   Participants should come prepared for the weather, as the walk will be held except in the event of threatening or severe weather. Long pants and shoes or hiking boots are recommended for all walks.
