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

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.
