Field Trip to Bahia Beach Nature Preserve

January 14 @ 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Free

Join Lilian Saul on a guided bird walk through Bahia Beach Nature Preserve. 

The restoration area consists of new wetlands created for the purposes of enhancing wildlife and marine habitat and improving water quality discharging into the bay. Wading birds, ducks, bald eagles and shorebirds offer great viewing opportunities for birdwatchers.

Everyone is welcome to attend walks. 

When going bird watching it is important to be well-prepared and comfortable. Here is a checklist of what to bring and wear: 

  • Wear comfortable shoes since there will be walking
  • Hat to shield you from the sun and reduce glare
  • Binoculars for close up view of birds. 
  • Field guide, eBird & Merlin apps are helpful in bird identification – your guides will help 
  • Water to stay hydrated
  • Sunscreen and Insect Repellant 

Meet in the parking lot.
