First FENCE Bird Walk of the Year planned

We are all ready for Spring and the birds have started to arrive. The first swallows of the year have already arrived and many more will be winging their way north in the next few weeks.

Join us for our first bird walk of the year on Thursday, March 25 at 8:00 a.m. Meet at the FENCE Center and be ready for a two hour walk around the property. In addition to Tree and Northern Rough-winged Swallows, we should see Blue-headed Vireo, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher and maybe Common Yellowthroat. This walk around the FENCE property will be led by a Ventures birding, international bird guide. 

Space for this event will be limited. Please plan to wear a face covering during this walk when social distancing is not available. Attendees should wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a water bottle and binoculars if you have them. 

Due to limited space, registration is required for this event. To register for this program call FENCE at 828-859-9021 or email info@fence.org. FENCE is located at 3381 Hunting Country Road in Tryon.
