Sheffield Regional Park is about 385 acres with nature trails and several lakes. We will look for ducks and other winter visitors. Sheffield Park is always full of surprises. There are open fields, wooded areas and several lakes and with so many habitats just about anything can turn up. During winter the lakes and ponds can hold a variety of ducks, mergansers and waders. The nature trails will take us through habitat ripe for other winter visitors such as warblers, kinglets and woodpeckers. We will try to cover all the lakes and ponds and several trails through open fields and wooded areas.
