Bird Walks with Bridget Butler
Join Bird Diva, Bridget Butler bird excursions in Franklin County and beyond! We'll tour various birding hot spots by van and take advantage of the seasonal bird phenomenon. Each trip will take you to a new location where we'll take short, easy walks to learn about a wide variety of songbirds, shorebirds, hawks, waterfowl and more. Participants register for each session separately - so you can pick and choose which dates work for you. Attend one or all! You'll meet a great bunch of people while enjoying the outdoors.
For half day excursions, the van leaves from Barlow Street Community Center at 7am the morning of each excursion and returns at approximately 11 am. Full day excursions departure and return time is as listed below.Each participant should bring lunch, water bottle and dress for the conditions (especially footwear).
