Chester County Parks Birding Series: #4 – Black Rock Sanctuary

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 4th park in our tour of Chester County’s parks is the 119-acre Black Rock Sanctuary, which contains wetlands, forest, and fields that provide excellent birding opportunities, especially from the paved loop trail which is fully accessible to those with mobility challenges.  Join us for a mid-summer morning’s exploration of this interesting park, its birds, and its history.

Our outing will cover 1-2 miles and will last approximately 2 hours.  No prior knowledge of birds or birding is necessary to attend – beginners are always welcome.  And please, bring the kids along – our programs are open to all ages (although children must be accompanied by an adult).  Bring binoculars if you have them.  A portable restroom is available on site.

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