Registration is closed
Join Deb Hale on a birding trip to the North Schoolhouse Ridge section of the Harper's Ferry National Park.

The bird walk is scheduled for Friday, April 25 at 
7:30 AM and will last about three hours.

The event is free and anyone with an interest is welcome to come along, regardless of their birding skills. Children are welcome as well.

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged but not required.

Participants should meet at the North Schoolhouse Ridge parking area. From Route 340 just west of Harper's Ferry, turn north on Bakerton Road (Rt 27) and go about three-quarters of a mile to the parking area on the left. The trip will involve about 2.5 miles of walking through fields and unpaved roads, along mostly level terrain.

Birds expected to be seen include returning warblers, vireos, meadowlarks and sparrows, as well as raptors and migrating birds. Many butterfly varieties also frequent this area.

Participants should wear sturdy footwear, dress for the prevailing weather conditions and bring along water, sunscreen and bug spray.

Binoculars will be available for anyone who needs them.

The trip will be canceled in the event of bad weather.
