Fall Migration Watch at the Thomas P. Bentley Nature Preserve


To register for this free event, please email: programs@frenchandpickering.org

French and Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust (FPCCT) is proud to own and protect the Thomas P. Bentley Nature Preserve, a 108-acre mosaic of woods, fields, wetlands, and stunning scenery in northern Chester County. Valley Forge Audubon Society is delighted to partner with FPCCT to guide a birding field trip at this magical place.

Join VFAS guides Patty and John Werth as they search the preserve for bird species that are stopping over on their journey south for the winter, or settling in to their winter ‘staycation’ spot where they hope to avoid the colder temperatures further north. The fall migration is a prime time to see a wide variety of birds, and a great opportunity to introduce the whole family to the wonders of birding.

Please register for the program so we know how many people to expect. Bring binoculars if you have them. Open to all ages and skill levels, this approximately 2-hour field trip will cover 1-2 miles on earthen paths which may be muddy and uneven in spots. Good footwear is a must.

There will be a portable toilet on site for this event.
