Roy H. Park Preserve (south entrance) – town of Dryden
None required — free and open to the public. The walks are free but donations are heartily welcomed. We will be keeping a tally of bird species found on Land Trust properties throughout the month. Please let us know if you would like to make a pledge per bird species found and we will let you know the total count once the numbers are in. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (607) 275-9487. General donations are welcome too. Gifts can be made online - please click the box that says “This gift is in honor or memory of someone” and type in: Spring Bird Quest.
This preserve takes visitors through fields and forests and down to Six Mile Creek. Bring binoculars if you have them. Beginning birders welcome! This event will be held rain or shine. For a full morning of spring birding, join us earlier at 6:30 AM at the Goetchius Wetland Preserve. Learn more about Spring Bird Quest.
