Our Spring Migrating Birds Hike: 

Our guided hike is in celebration of World Migratory Bird Day! Among birders, this is known as the Global Big Day - a day to get out and see as many bird species as you possibly can! Together we will walk Woodcock Nature Center's Orange Trail across Spectacle Lane and into the Wilton Land Trust’s Spectacle Lane Trail to look and listen for birds, and learn about the forest and its various habitats.

Wilton Land Trust’s Executive Director will help attendees see the forest through the trees and  Woodcock educator and birding enthusiast Tommy McCarthy will share his knowledge of all the species we encounter.


So, grab your water bottle, supportive shoes, tick and bug repellant, and your camera and binoculars, and join us for a morning of adventure and learning. And don't forget - leave your furry friends at home, so we don't scare away any potential wildlife!
