Meng Preserve Breeding Bird Census
Parking is limited at the Meng Preserve, so please register for this program by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join Vince Smith, President of Valley Forge Audubon Society, while he conducts a breeding bird census at a property very familiar to VFAS: the Meng Preserve.
Once the home of Eva R. Meng, an avid preservationist, and used for a time as a girl scout camp, this unique 101-acre property was gifted to Valley Forge Audubon Society in 1994. In 2017 arrangements were made to turn the property over to Natural Lands. The site is part of the Stone Hill Greenway and includes spectacular diabase rock formations that make the trails wonderfully challenging, so good boots are a must.
Beginning birders and children who are accompanied by an adult are very welcome to attend, as Vince will be pointing out the birds that he sees and hears during the census. Please bring binoculars if you have them – censusing birds is a team sport! There are no restrooms on site.
