Second Saturday Bird Walks
Forsyth Audubon has a long tradition of holding bird walks open both to members and the public on the second Saturday of every month, clouds or shine and perhaps even with a little precipitation. Each month, the walk is held at a different park or greenway around Forsyth County. We also like to check out the ducks and shorebirds that visit the Archie Elledge Waste Water Treatment Plant. Walks begin at 8 a.m., April through October, and at 9 a.m., November through March. Participation is free.
Being able to identify all of the birds by sight or sound is not required. Quite the opposite, this is a great opportunity for the beginning and intermediate birder to learn more about the birds in our area and to improve their identification skills. More experienced birders offer tips about bird watching and identification. Most of all, we are out there to have fun exploring our local natural habitats with people who share our interests. Families and young children who like birds are welcome. Bring binoculars, if you have them, but we also have a couple pair that are just the right size for young naturalists.
Monday Bird Walks
Our Saturday walks have proved so popular, we started having Monday Bird Walks. So, it you are retired, work at home, work on weekends or just want to get out on a beautiful day before going to work, join us the last Monday of every month (excluding December).
See our Calendar, for a complete list of our scheduled walks.
