Spring Birding – 5/16

Unfortunately, our Spring Birding program is cancelled, as heavy rain and thunderstorms are in the forecast. We are working on a rescheduled date for another birding program in the near future! Thank you for your understanding!

Beginner bird watchers and expert ornithologists alike are invited to join us on Monday, May 16th for a morning of birding at Penn Dixie! We will explore the park’s woods and wetlands in search of spring migrants and year-round residents. This program runs from 10 am – 12 pm and is free for everyone. We will be meeting at the check-in pavilion next to the parking lot before we start our avian adventure. We have a limited number of binoculars available, please indicate using the form below if you would like to borrow a pair for this program.

Please dress in weather-appropriate gear, pack layers, and wear boots. Parts of our park can get muddy, especially in the springtime! Additionally, we advise that you bring bottled water as we do not have running water on site. There are portable toilets available near the parking lot. This event is rain, snow, or shine, but if there is heavy rain or we detect lightning on site, the program will be cancelled and you will be notified via email.

Note: this event does not include fossil hunting. Penn Dixie is open to the public for fossil hunting weekends-only April 30th through June 13th. We open daily from June 13th to September 5th.
