Monthly Bird Walk @ Black/Maquam Creek Trail
Jul 16 @ 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Please join us for our monthly bird monitoring walks on the refuge.  Ken Copenhaver and Julie Filiberti lead the walks on various refuge trails on the third Saturday of each month. The purpose of the walks is to gather long-term data on the presence of birds, their abundance, and changes in populations. Observations are entered into the Vermont eBird database where data is stored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society. These walks are appropriate for birders of all skill levels and provide a wonderful opportunity to learn about birds throughout the seasons.

Our walk this month will be on Saturday, July 16th from 8:00 to 10:00 AM at the Black/Maquam Creek Trail.  Meet at the parking lot on Rte 78, about 2.5 miles west of Swanton Village.

COVID Notice: We will be following Vermont state COVID-19 protocols for outdoor activities. We ask that you stay home if you are feeling ill and to wear a mask if you are unvaccinated and when you can’t maintain a safe social distance.

If you have any questions, contact Ken Copenhaver at copenhvr@gmail.com
