Coventry Woods is part of Hopewell Big Woods, and 153 species of birds have been recorded at this site in just the last four years. The trails are unpaved and some are steep. This walk of about 3-4 hours will cover 1-2 miles. If there is interest, there is the possibility of a second walk of similar duration and distance to follow at a different
location within the 660-acre park, which usually yields some additional species. This is a joint trip with West Chester Bird Club.

The Freedoms Foundation is located on 75-acres in the heart of Valley Forge. VFAS has worked with the Medal of Honor grove to improve habitat by planting native plants and establishing a butterfly garden. The Grove has been approved for Level 1 arboretum accreditation. The Arboretum has over 50 species of trees & shrubs and they are inviting birders to visit the property. Please join us for a walk around the property to look for spring migrants and resident birds. Easy walking and beginner birders are welcome. Meet in the main parking lot.
