Birding on the Boardwalk, Wednesdays 9AM

Birders Meet Up! Join our experts at the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center to experience birding from the new boardwalk. This walk will be short along our boardwalk, but offers great vistas for watching all our wonderful birds. Guides Ray Dillahunty and Leslie Hoesktra will lead the group in discovering all the Center has to offer.

All experience levels are welcome, and binoculars are available for loan.

Meet at the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center at 9:00am.
