Winter Birding at Kardon Park
Enjoy birding new places? Then join us to explore Kardon Park on VFAS’s first-ever birding trip to this location in the heart of Downingtown. Also known as The Ponds, the park contains 10 acres of fishing ponds and more than 40 acres of open green space including woods and wetlands. Kardon Park (GPS: 276X+CP Downingtown) also connects to the Struble Trail which parallels the east branch of the Brandywine Creek.
We will meet at the southern end of Kardon Park in the parking lot by the large pond. The trails here are flat and paved or natural surface. There is no bathroom facility at the park, but there is a portable restroom at the Struble Trail parking lot a half mile away (which we may go by, depending on the interest of the group.)
Bring binoculars if you have them and dress for the weather. The leader will have a spotting scope to share. Beginning birders and children (if accompanied by an adult) are always welcome on VFAS outings.
