DURHAM: Guided Bird Walk at Sandy Creek Park

Event Date: 
Sat, Mar 22 8:00 to 10:00

THIS OUTING IS FULL AND IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING NEW RSVPs (3/21/14).

As part of Durham's Annual Creek Week celebration activities, the Headwaters Group of the Sierra Club will be hosting a guided bird walk around Sandy Creek. Now known as a birding hot spot--it's hard to believe the beautiful wildlife-filled park was once referred to as "Old Stinky"!!!  We'll meet at 8am at the covered picnic area next to the parking lot.  The terrain is rather flat but may be a bit wet in spots--please wear closed toed shoes and bring your camera and binoculars! You will be able to share binoculars if you don't have your own, so don't let that keep you from coming!

We will have two wonderful bird guides so we can take two smaller groups around the park: Brian Bockhahn (State Park Education Ranger) and Robert Meehan (local expert birder).

All attendees (at all Creek Week events) will get a raffle ticket to win one of two Ivy Rain Barrels, courtesy of the City of Durham.
