Overview

Audubon Certified Birder and North County Land Trust Board Member Clay Hobart shares the wonders of spring birds. This is an early morning walk from 7 - 9 am. We will take our time enjoying the birds and walking perhaps a mile or two at most. In particular, Clay will share what he sees for birds 13 months post harvest compared to pre-harvest in the Lancaster Town Forest. Tim Castner, Chair Lancaster Town Forest, will be there as well. This will be fascinating. Lancaster had a carefully planned harvest in the town forest 13 months ago ..... designed to improve the health of the trees and wildlife in the area. Let's see what has happened since. Please be sure to dress for the weather. Early April early morning can be cool. Suggest layers! Suggest boots as well. Sneakers may get wet and be uncomfortable. Snacks for the kids and water always a good thing. This hike is part of the AMC Family Beginner Hiking Program (BHP).
