Welcome the Warblers Walk
May 11, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Save the date for International Migratory Bird Day on May 11! This is a day to celebrate one of the most important and spectacular events in the life of a migratory bird — the journey between its summer breeding and wintering grounds.
Hundreds of millions of birds of all sizes travel thousands of miles in spring and fall. It’s an impressive phenomenon with few equals in the animal kingdom. Unfortunately, these great migrations are under pressure from a variety of threats like loss of habitat for breeding, climate change, and more. That’s one reason why conserving grasslands and forests in the Valley and around the world is so important.
Join us on Saturday, May 11 from 8 am – 10 am with expert birder Geoff LeBaron to look for and learn more about the avian migrants like warblers who will be passing through the Valley — or settling in to build a nest — this spring. The program will take place at a birding hotspot: The Silvio O. Conte National Fish & Wildlife Refuge in Hadley.
Space is limited to 20 participants. This program is free but registration is required.
