Spring Bird Walk – Birding by Ear

As more and more leaves cover the trees and understory of the forest, it becomes increasingly difficult to see birds and other wildlife – but there are other ways to appreciate the biodiversity of The Garden State! We will take the time to stop and listen for the vocalizations of Wood Thrush, Hooded Warbler, and the other birds of Bamboo Brook.

Spring Bird Walk – Forest Interior

Spring migration continues as we venture into the forest to search for migrants and breeding birds. We’ll hope to see Scarlet Tanagers, Ovenbirds, Woodpeckers, and other species that prefer the taller trees and denser vegetation of mature woodland.

South Jersey Field Trip #2

Join us for a natural history tour of parts of the Franklin Parker Preserve. This will be a leisurely-paced walking tour, but it will sometimes take us off the beaten path, so be sure to wear long pants and sturdy hiking shoes. Our focus will be the vegetation communities and the specific trees, shrubs, and other plants we encounter, but we'll also take notice of any and all other natural aspects of the land. The Pine Barrens is not barren!

Spring Bird Walk – Meadows & Edges

Naturalist Bill Lynch will lead us through the meadows and forest edges of Bamboo Brook as we search for both spring migrants and breeding birds. Songbirds love the transition between forest and field, and use the treetops to sing their hearts out.
