Breakfast With the Birds

Arrive between 7:30 and 8 am. Bring your binoculars and favorite breakfast beverage; we’ll supply some pastries and other goodies, and nature will supply the birds! That’s all we’ll need to enjoy a spring morning of “slow birding” together — breakfast with the birds and each other. This park offers easy access to picnic tables in the grassy areas conveniently near the lower, large parking lot, with great birding opportunities in close view of woods and the river. We may see everything from eagles and kingfishers on the river to orioles, warblers, woodpeckers and vireos nesting and foraging in the nearby trees. If you do not plan on walking the trail you may want to bring a folding chair just in case there are not enough picnic benches.

All experience levels and those with access needs are welcome to join us, as are all ages, including children if accompanied by an adult. Our outing will last up to three hours, although you may leave at any time. We will have volunteer guides there to bird with and assist those wishing to just relax and “bird from the benches” while other volunteer guides may lead some slow birding down the path along the river if desired.

An accessible restroom is available onsite.
