Discovery Series: Beginner Birding

July 13 @ 9:00 am 11:30 am

Padanarum Rd
Bolton Landing, New York 12814

New York is home to more than 450 species of birds. While hiking up to the Godwin Preserve overlook with an Up Yonda Farm Naturalist, learn birding basics on how to identify birds. The overlook provides great views of soaring raptors and nearby songbirds to test out your new identification skills.

Binoculars and the smartphone app, Merlin Bird ID, are recommended. This hike is rated easy/moderate with several steeper sections. 1.6 miles round-trip.
