Registration is closed

Join avid bird watcher and wildlife biologist Dave King for trip through the Wildwood Cemetery grounds. We will likely see a variety of migrant birds returning from their winter homes in Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. Spring migration is a distinct season, after a winter of monastic foraging and thousands of miles of travel, birds are on the breeding grounds for a few months of romance, all at the height of their plumage, and pouring forth their joyful song. Highlights will be the colorful and vociferous warblers, but vireos, buntings and thrushes are all possibilities. The terrain is a mix of dirt roads and woodland paths, including some gentle hills.

Meet at the cemetery office in the brick Dickinson Farmhouse. Parking is available at the Wildwood Farmhouse (cemetery business entrance is across from the Wildwood Elementary School) and the Main Entrance (top of Strong Street). Please do not park on the grass, and be respectful of the grounds and the people who come to mourn. Bathroom facilities are available at the start/end point. Questions? Contact Rebecca Fricke, General Manager, at Limited to 22 participants. Please register online at least two days in advance of the trip.
