Chester County Parks Birding Series: #2 – Nottingham County Park

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 2024.

The site for the 2nd 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 (such as the Yellow-breasted Chat and Prairie Warbler) reliably breed here but very few other places in the county.

This outing will cover 1-2 miles on gently sloping natural surface trails and will last approximately 2-3 hours.  Bring binoculars if you have them.  Beginners and children (accompanied by an adult) are always welcome at Valley Forge Audubon Society events.  Modern restrooms are available on site at the park office, where we will meet.

Registration through Chester County Parks is not required to attend this program.
