Burroughs’ Birds of Spring – June 15, 9am

Celebrate NY’s Path Through History weekend with a bird walk at John Burroughs Memorial Field. Join DOAS co-President Andy Mason, along with Park Naturalists for an outdoor foray in search of the birds of spring. Affectionately known as “John O’Birds”, the renowned Catskill naturalist waxed especially romantic about the “return of the birds,” bringing millions of Americans a heightened appreciation of nature during a critical period in US conservation history. Bird sightings found at the Memorial Field will be embellished with pertinent quotes from Burroughs’ vibrant essays.
This program is open to the public free of charge. John Burroughs Memorial Field is located at 1067 Burroughs Memorial Road, just off Hardscrabble Road, in Roxbury, NY. For more information contact: MineKillSP@parks.ny.gov or (518) 827-8690.
