Join ACT’s Spring Bird Walk May 19

LITTLETON – Birders of all ages and experience are invited to join the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) for its annual bird walk! On Saturday, May 19th from 7 – 9 a.m. ACT is hosting a special trip to ACT land near Lowe’s in Littleton and at ACT’s Ammonoosuc River Wildlife Management Area in Lisbon.

Brush off your birding skills or come and learn new ones. We’ll look and listen for warblers, vireos, and others species that favor being near water, and we’ll look at the eagles’ nest on the Ammonoosuc River in Lisbon. ACT Executive Director Rebecca Brown will lead the group and offer tips and tricks for bird identification including birding by ear.

Registration for our walks is required – for your enjoyment we must cap the walk at 14 participants; please be sure to pre-register ASAP as these walks fill up fast. If registration fills up early please reach out to Gal at outreach@aconservationtrust.org to be added to the wait list as cancellations do happen. Be aware registration closes on Friday, May 18th. Once registered, you will receive an e-mail with details of the meeting location. Birders of all experience levels and ages are welcome, and the walk is dog-friendly (bring a leash, be prepared for them to swim and get muddy; everyone be prepared for ticks). This walk is free, but donations are most appreciated! Details are also available online at http://www.aconservationtrust.org/education-events.
