PVAS Trip Leaders: Bill Telfair & Scot DeGraf
This event is free and open to the public, however, registration is required and limited to 15 participants. Children are welcome but they must be accompanied by an adult. Anyone with an interest is welcome to come along, regardless of their birding skills.
We are very excited to be able to offer bird walks on the gorgeous trails of Rolling Ridge Conservancy. We hope you will join Bill and Scot as they explore some of the 1500 acres of protected woodlands. These walks will be held on the second Tuesday of every month.
The trails wind through the woods with some hilly, rocky sections that could be slippery when wet. Please wear sturdy walking shoes, bring along drinking water and walking poles are encouraged. Binoculars will be available for anyone that needs them.
At this time of year, participants can expect to see mostly winter birds of the deep woods, including chickadees, nuthatches, titmice, Brown creepers, wrens, sparrows, Northern cardinals, and woodpeckers. There is at least one pair of Pileated woodpeckers in permanent residence.
Please meet by 7:30 am at 138 Tupelo Lane, Harpers Ferry, WV. The walk will last at least a couple of hours.
Rolling Ridge Conservancy welcomes donations, which can either be accepted on the morning of the walk or through their website. Please ask Bill or Scot how your donations will help foster their mission.
