Take a Walk on the Wild Side

Saturday, May 5th Start time: 8:30 am- Program length: 2 hrs.

If the sweet melodious trills of songbirds is music to your ear, you will not want to miss this bird walk through the wetland and scrub areas of Pfeiffer Nature Center’s Eshelman Preserve.  A well-known location for regional birders, the preserve hosts a multitude of migratory and resident birds.  Visitors may see and/or hear dozens of species that frequent the area as they walk along grassy, gentle trails.  The guided walk starts in the parking lot and will be led by Tim Baird, President of the Cattaraugus County Bird Study Club.  The group will slowly walk through the property noting what they see and or hear.  Conversation is kept to a minimum as this is an observational activity.  Effort is made not to disturb the wildlife in order to create optimal viewing conditions.  Please bring binoculars if you have them.  No pets please.  This activity is free and open to the public.  Donations are gratefully accepted.  Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
