Father’s Day Birding at the Bentley Preserve

Father’s Day is a special time to celebrate our fathers.  (Thanks for everything, Dad.)  This year, join us in celebrating the feathered fathers out there too!

In June, birds are well into nesting and some are already parents with youngsters out of the nest.  As we meander around the Thomas P. Bentley Nature Preserve, we will observe and discuss the ‘whats’ and ‘whys’ of the feathered fathers’ behaviors (and no, of course we won’t ignore mom and the kids – we will be observing many of them, too).  Bring your binoculars, your enthusiasm, and your questions, and we’ll see what we can all learn together.

This field trip is appropriate for all ages and every level of experience – bring the whole family!   We will be travelling along natural surface trails with some hills and will cover a mile or more.  Bring binoculars if you have them and wear good walking shoes.  A hat and sunscreen are recommended.  This outing will last approximately 2 hours.

There are no restrooms available on site.
