Event Details

Rain date: August 3

Join DOAS summer interns Cami Robinson-Parisi and Kaylee Haig for a kid-friendly morning bird hike for families with children ages 8+. We will walk around the DOAS Sanctuary trails as we listen and look for signs of bird activity around the property! 

This walk will be beginner-led and beginner-friendly, taking a “slow birding” approach, focusing on what we see the birds in front of us doing and what we can infer from these observations. We will also compile a list of recorded species to submit to eBird and follow up with a brief discussion about citizen science.

Participants should wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing and shoes for the hike. Be sure to bring water and sun protection. Everyone is encouraged to bring binoculars and field guides if they have them!

Accessibility: Accessible Porta-Potty available. Trail terrain is fairly flat, with a few uphill/medium-difficulty sections.
