FALL MIGRATION BIRD WALK

SEPTEMBER 23, 9AM to 11AM

Fall migration is upon us! Many birds are moving from their breeding range to their wintering range. Join Miley Bull, senior director of science and conservation at Deer Pond Farm to learn which birds migrate, why and the factors that affect them.

BEGINNING BIRDING WALK

SEPTEMBER 26, 1PM to 3PM

Are you new to birding? Would you like help with binocular use and bird identification? In this
program led by Deirdra Wallin, center manager, field guides, apps and tips will be shared. This includes information on using bird size & shape, color, behavior and habitat to help with identification.

TREES ALONG THE TRAIL WALK

SEPTEMBER  25, 10AM to Noon

Would you like to learn to identify native trees and shrubs? And understand their wildlife value? Join us for this 1.5 mile walk which will focus on some of the 50+ native trees and shrubs found at Deer Pond Farm.

CONSERVATION WALK:  HEALTHY HABITATS

SEPTEMBER 25, 1PM to 3PM
Did you know that there are 97 plant species that are officially designated as “invasive” in Connecticut? What is an invasive plant anyway, why should you care, and what can you do about them? What plants can you add to your landscape to support healthy habitats for wildlife? Conservation biologist Jim Arrigoni will lead a gentle walk and discussion to answer these questions and more while identifying invasive and native plant species along the way.
