Sunday, June 9, 2013 - Breakfast & Bird Walk
7:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Cost: $25 (Free for NMRWA members!)
Meet at the Fern Hollow parking lot, at the bottom of Lancaster Avenue
Join us as we bird the Nine Mile Run valley & explore the seasonal changes in the restoration area on a tour led by Jack Solomon. In the past, we have been delighted to see winged visitors like Carolina Chickadees, Carolina Wrens, Baltimore Orioles, Yellow Warblers, Scarlet Tanagers, and Indigo Buntings... they're all possible to see in the restoration area on an early June morning! A late breakfast will be provided, but this is one of our most popular events, so pre-registration is required.
Please register here! If you are not a NMRWA member, please use the PayPal link below to pay the $25 registration fee & then return here to register. Thank you! For more information, please contact Sara at 412-371-8779 ext. 123 or email@example.com.
