Birds And More: Ecology Walk With Jim Arrigoni

Tuesday, Jul 17, 2018 from 9:00am to 12:00pm


Join Jim Arrigoni, conservation biologist in exploring the diverse habitats of Deer Pond Farm in Sherman.  Walks will emphasize different themes such as forest birds and birdsong, wetlands wildlife, night songs, and plants.  We will move at a leisurely pace, stopping to observe and learn about various points of interest as they are encountered and collecting data for the Connecticut Bird Atlas Survey.

Join us for a briskly-paced walk as we explore some different trails.  We’ll look and listen for signs of birds and other wildlife while we keep a consistent pace through forests, meadows and around wetlands.  We will take breaks at a few points of interest for naturalist lessons.  Please bring water and hiking pole.

Dress for walks that cover approximately 1.5 miles along moderately hilly terrain and the weather. Inclement weather cancels. Bring binoculars, camera, bug spray, sunscreen and a sense of adventure.

All walks free for members and $5 for non-members.
