Spring Birding at Hildacy Preserve
Join as we look for spring migrants and local residents at Natural Lands’ Hildacy Preserve. We’ll be looking for arriving migrants such as warblers, swallows, orioles, flycatchers, indigo buntings, and gnatcatchers.
No prior knowledge of birds or birding is necessary to attend. These programs are open to all ages, although we ask that children under 18 be accompanied by an adult. If you have binoculars, bring them, and dress for the weather. The leaders will have 2 pairs of binoculars to loan out.
These are mostly flat earthen trails that can be very wet and muddy if it rains in the days prior to the outing. Waterproof footwear is recommended.
Meet in the parking lot by the trailhead.
There is no public restroom at the preserve; however, portable restrooms are available at Rose Tree Park, 2 miles away from Hildacy on Rt 252. Masks are not required for this outdoor program, although VFAS encourages all participants to be fully vaccinated and asymptomatic to attend.
