Birding Focus: Three main habitats (lake, wetlands, mixed woods) provide good species diversity. We will look for winter residents, including raptors, waterfowl, waders and passerines. This walk is suitable for adults and children over 14 years of age and is especially good for beginning birders.

Species, numbers and results are uploaded to www.ebird.org the Cornell University Lab of Ornithology site for tracking & information.
Some of the trail is level, but there are several steep spots and a number of stretches where the surface is uneven from exposed tree roots, etc. Many parts of the trail are muddy and/or slippery after rains; plan your footwear accordingly. Restrooms are available at the SW corner of the park, near the baseball fields.
