The 535-acre Warwick County Park (382 County Park Rd, Pottstown) in northern Chester County includes dense hardwood forest, wetlands, meadows, and riparian areas along a section of French Creek, an "exceptional value" stream. This diversity provides excellent habitat for birds. This walk on mainly flat (and possibly muddy) terrain on unpaved trails will cover approximately 2 miles. A modern restroom is on site. Join us afterwards for brews and lunch at Tony Joe’s (1161 Ridge Rd, Pottstown).
Leaders: Patty Werth (484-985-8164, email@example.com) and John Werth (215-859-1148)

Join us for a free, guided bird walk at Mill Grove. We’ll visit the creek, cross the meadows, and hike through the woods on both paved and unpaved trails. Children and beginners are welcome! We have extra binoculars, so don’t worry if you forget yours or don’t have them. Walks begin in the main parking lot. Facebook will be updated by 7:00 a.m. the day of each walk if we need to cancel due to inclement weather.
