Worm eating warbler

Saturday morning bird walks are fun and a great way to learn
about the birds of Pennsylvania, as well as migrants and summer visitors.

Join Us for a Guided Bird Walk

Every Saturday Morning!

Bird walks are open to birders of all ages and abilities.  We meet in front of the Visitor Center at 8am and set out on our trails and along farm fields to observe birds in their natural habitat. Walks are free and open to everyone.  Bring your own binoculars, or borrow a pair from the visitor center.
This week's guided bird walk is sponsored by Drexel Metals.  We express our appreciation to Drexel Metals, Eiseman Roofing and Phillips and Donovan Architects for providing materials and installing a new roof over our visitor center!
