Middle Harbor Shorebird Walk


This shoreline park is home to a rich variety of resident and wintering migrant bird life. Eric Schroeder will be our guide to help us identify and learn about them.  The shoreline path is flat and our distance can be from 1 to 3 mi. The park also has a rich history which we can explore (on the longer walk option) after the bird walk.

WHEN: Sunday, March 5, 2017 from 9:30-11:30 am

WHERE: The main park entrance is at 2777 Middle Harbor Rd, just past where 7th street runs into Middle Harbot Rd.  As you enter, facing a flagpole, turn into the parking lot on the left and walk to the small building (with restrooms and water fountain. We’ll meet outside that building
