ChesCo Parks Birding Series: #3 – Nottingham

The Chester County Parks system has seven wonderful parks which provide excellent birdwatching opportunities.  Join us as we explore all seven of the parks, one per month, in 2023.

The site for the 3rd park in our series, Nottingham County Park boasts some of the most unique natural features in the park system. Located in southern Chester County near the Maryland border, this park protects a globally rare ecosystem comprised of serpentine rock, oak-pine barrens, savannahs, prairies, and many unique plants, which in turn harbor a wide variety of birds, some of which reliably breed here but very few other places in the county.

No prior knowledge of birds or birding is necessary to attend.  If you are a beginner, join us!  Children (accompanied by an adult) are always welcome, too, on our family-friendly field trips.

Bring binoculars if you have them.  This outing will cover 1-2 miles on gently sloping natural surface trails and will last approximately 2-3 hours.  Restrooms are available on site at the park office, where we will meet.

This field trip is a collaboration between Valley Forge Audubon Society, the West Chester Bird Club, and Chester County Parks and Preservation.
