Accessible Birding Saturdays: Norristown Farm Park
Join us as we return to Norristown Farm Park this fall (and yes, you’re right – fall doesn’t start in August, but the autumn migration does) for an accessible outing during which we will explore which bird species may already be leaving the area (such as the tree swallows) and which migrants are beginning to pass through, all the while searching for many year-round winged residents. The varied habitat of woods, stream, natural field, and farmland here always offers a variety of bird sighting possibilities, from hawks to killdeer to songbirds. We will follow a 1-2 mile accessible route along a wide, paved path and possibly a section of flat dirt path.
New birders are very welcome to join us, as are children if accompanied by an adult. Bring binoculars if you have them. Accessible restroom facilities are on site.
Location: Norristown Farm Park; Parking lot 3: turn off of Germantown Pike onto Barley Sheaf Drive, stay right and follow it back as it becomes Upper Farm Road and the entrance to the park. Follow the park road all the way down to where it dead ends at Parking Lot 3 (there is a sign).
