If birding is something you like to do, or would like to try, we have two very unique and special “Nature’s Not to Be Missed” bird walks on our May schedule. Register while there’s still space left at www.geaugaparkdistrict.org or 440-286-9516.
World Migratory Bird Day Evening Bird Walk (with Naturalist Linda Gilbert)
Monday, May 16, 7:30-9:30 PM, at Observatory Park
The theme of this year’s World Migratory Bird Day is the impact of light pollution on migratory birds – so let’s take an evening bird walk at our “dark sky” park! Learn about the importance of dark skies for bird migration as we hike and listen for migratory birds. Weather permitting, we’ll also have a telescope focused on the moon and maybe see some birds in their migratory journey.
Neotropical Bird Walk (with Naturalist John Kolar)
Saturday, May 21, 7:30-9:30 AM, at Swine Creek Reservation
Hike the Walnut and Razorback trails in Swine Creek Valley in search of beautiful, neotropical songbirds! Remember to wear waterproof footgear or footgear that you don’t mind getting wet, as our walk will include a stream crossing with water up to two feet deep. Bring binoculars.
