Bird Walks at Riverwood

The promise is fine weather on Thursday, so go for a walk.  It's an excellent time to see the birds as the trees have not leafed out and you can locate them more readily.

Bird Watching Hikes

Great for families, new birders and experienced ones alike! Meet at the main (first) parking lot by the sign board at Riverwood.
