Natural Lands Trust’s 3,400-acre Bear Creek Preserve protects a vast expanse of forests and steep stream valleys in the Pocono Plateau’s Lehigh River Watershed.
Debbie Beer, engagement manager and avid birder, will guide us in looking for late migrants and breeding bird species, including Scarlet Tanagers, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, thrushes, warblers, cuckoos and more.
Birders of all backgrounds and experience levels, from beginners to advanced, are invited to join the walk. Dress in layers for seasonal weather and wear sturdy boots. Insect repellent and sunscreen are recommended. Bring a water bottle and binoculars if you have them (a few are available to borrow). Light snacks provided.
This event is free of charge and pre-registration is not required.
This event is co-hosted by Natural Lands Trust and Wildlands Conservancy.
