Bird Tails and Trails
Bald Hill Farm Bird Walk, Wednesday | May 5, 8-10:30 am
We will be birding with Greenbelt Stewardship Director Matt Blakeley-Smith through the west side of Bald Hill Farm in areas not open to the public, and then up to Mulkey Ridge trail. We will hear about current prairie and oak restoration projects at Bald Hill Farm and hopefully see a lot of birds!
No birding experience or bird knowledge necessary! We will tour at a leisurely pace with some moderate elevation gain on gravel trails. Dress for the weather and bring your own snacks and water. Group size is limited, and masks are required, but may not need to be worn the whole time as we spread out on the property.

A ZOOM presentation with Dave Eckert showing the unique 10-year old native arboretum that is open to the public at Cheldelin Middle School that is used in school curricula and by its students to learn about our local native flora.
