Evening Birding at Welkinweir
After the heat of summer days, evenings can be a magical time to be out in nature, and nowhere is a summer evening more lovely than at Welkinweir, a private nature preserve “where sky meets water” and home to the Green Valleys Watershed Association (GVWA). Join former GVWA intern Eric Hughes and VFAS board member and PA Master Naturalist Patty Werth as they traverse the grounds of this beautiful former estate, which will be open only to us, searching for birds that become more active as the day cools and night closes in.
This field trip is open to all ages and experience levels, including those new to birding, so please do bring the kids with you. We will be travelling a little over a mile along unpaved and uneven dirt footpaths over the course of two hours, so please wear sturdy shoes with good tread. There is one steep hill to navigate.
Bring binoculars if you have them and meet in the visitor parking lot west of the main entrance. A portable restroom is available on site.
