    Spring 2017 Bird Walk

April 30, 2017

8:00 AM

At the Circle


Spring is an ideal time to observe a wide variety of birds in our community, as we are in the middle of the Atlantic Flyway migratory path. 


To help you enjoy this opportunity, the Thielke Arboretum is offering a guided bird walk on Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 8:00 AM, meet at the circle inside the arboretum.


The walk will be led by Len Greer, a local resident and wildlife photography enthusiast (photo by: Helene McGuire)Len has photographed many animals in and around the Arboretum, including hawks, falcons, foxes and raccoons. Some of his photos can be found on Instagram: @InSightbyLens.  His 2016 group identified 22 different bird species, including broad-winged hawks, Baltimore orioles and common yellowthroats. During the walk, Len will help with bird identification, share his favorite locations for spotting wildlife, and offer nature photography tips. 


This guided tour will last approximately ninety (90) minutes. Simply dress for the weather and bring your binoculars, camera, some patience, and a desire to learn more about these essential members of our environment. This tour is by donation ($10 for Arboretum members, $15 for non-members), payable at the time of the walk. 


The Birding Tour at the Thielke Arboretum is one of several interesting educational events planned for the 2017 outdoor season.  The Arboretum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of our natural habitats through the efforts of its volunteers.
