The first part of the hike will be through Boyd’s Woods in search of warblers and other migratory songbirds. It will continue past Snakey Point Marsh for possible views of waterfowl and marsh birds. The hike will end at a little-visited portion of the Columbia Mine Preserve area to look for grassland sparrows.
This event is free to the public and pre-registration is not required. Sturdy walking shoes are recommended for the primitive portion of the trail.
