Three main habitats (lake, wetlands and mixed woods) provide good species diversity. We’ll look for residents and wintering birds, including raptors, waterfowl, waders, woodpeckers and passerines. This walk is suitable for adults and children over 14 years of age. Please do not bring your dog. This site can be especially good for beginning birders. Some of the trail is level, but there are several steep spots and a number of stretches where the surface is uneven from exposed tree roots, etc. Many parts of the trail are muddy and/or slippery after rains; plan your footwear accordingly. Restrooms are available at the southwest corner of the park, near the baseball fields.
