Birding Through The Seasons at Lundale Farm
Birds, bird habitat, and farming – can they peacefully coexist? At Lundale Farm, the answer is yes.
Lundale Farm is a community of regenerative farmers working to enhance the ecology, health, and diversity of the land. Because the farm is sustainably managed, it not only provides fresh local food for consumers but also provides excellent habitat in which birds can thrive.
Join us once each month, March through June, as we explore the variety of bird life that feeds, breeds, shelters, and travels in the woodlands and fields of Lundale Farm, and how the species that are present change from month to month as we move from winter to spring to summer. We will be joined by representatives of the farm who will explain some of the “old-is-new” techniques that are utilized to ensure that the farmlands remain productive for birds and people alike.
These birding field trips will cover between 1 and 1.5 miles over gently sloping grassy and gravel surfaces where the footing can be uneven and muddy. Please bring binoculars if you have them and wear good hiking shoes. Beginners and children (accompanied by an adult) are always welcome at Valley Forge Audubon Society events.
A portable toilet is available on site.
