Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

On Thursday, February 24th at 9 a.m., Kevin Burke of Ventures Birding Tours will lead a winter bird walk around the FENCE property. This program is great for birders of all levels, from beginners to more advanced birders. 


Winter can be a great time for bird watching in the Foothills. Attendees will explore the FENCE property in search of year-round and wintering bird species. It is possible that we may encounter red-tailed hawks, sparrows and woodpeckers, to name a few. This program will meet at the FENCE center. Remember to wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the cooler winter temperatures.
