Winter Bird Census

January 5, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am
Winter is a great time for bird watching. Birds need to be active and feeding to stay warm, and they become easier to observe along the trails once the leaves fall. Beginners pair up with experienced birders to continue our annual tradition of monitoring the species richness and abundance of birds that winter in our fields and forests. All of the information we collect will be shared with other citizen scientists, helping us understand how our local bird populations change over time. Warm drinks and snacks provided.

Giants of the Forest

January 19, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
During this guided hike, we’ll see some of the biggest trees in our forest—some over 13’ around!  Learn how to identify these trees based on their winter characteristics, such as shape and bark pattern.  As we walk past old fields and ruins of 19th century homesteads, you’ll hear about the history of the land and how human use has influenced our forest. If there is snow cover on the ground, wear warm boots or snowshoes. Space is limited. Pre-registration required.…
