Join Lawler and other bird lovers on a scenic hike along various trails and learn how to identify a variety of species found in the wetlands, meadows and forests surrounding the Nature Center. Expect the hike to be around 3 to 4 miles and be sure to bring sturdy footwear, bottled water and a pair of binoculars for your viewing pleasure. A limited number of binoculars will be available for hikers to borrow.
