Bird Watching and Identification Walk at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust
Join Marilyn Henry at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust at 2 p.m. on July 21 for a Bird Watching and Identification Walk, part of its Walk in the Wild series. Participants will search for birds in the 36 acres along Big Timber Creek, which consist of woods, marshlands and a meadow.
Henry, a resident of Wenonah, has been an avid birder since 2008. She has extensively explored bird habitats in Gloucester County and has birded in all of New Jersey’s counties, plus 28 states and 13 foreign countries. Henry guides twice-a-month bird walks at Scotland Run Park, in Clayton; hosts training sessions for the annual Gloucester County Nature Club’s Bird Quest; conducts bird surveys; and helps with various Christmas Bird Counts in South Jersey. “Finding birds while walking a trail, meadow or shoreline is fun, and I always enjoy sharing discoveries with others,” she says.
Attendees are asked to bring their binoculars and to meet at the Willoughby House at the end of Pine Avenue, off Good Intent Road, in Blackwood Terrace. There is an additional small parking lot available at the end of Rankin Avenue, one block from Pine Avenue.
