POSTPONED: Accessible Birding at Anderson Woods Nature Preserve

May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

This event has been postponed: stay tuned for the new date during fall bird migration! 

Join the Land Conservancy of West Michigan, Disability Network West Michigan, and the Grand Rapids Audubon Club for a birding event at Anderson Woods Nature Preserve. The Grand Rapids Audubon Club will lead us as we hike the accessible trail, learn the basics of birding, and put our skills to the test.

Located near the lakeshore, Anderson Woods provides important nesting and feeding habitat for migratory birds and supports resident birds that require large tracts of unbroken forest. To assist in the identification and tracking of any birds spotted on the trail, we recommend downloading the Merlin Bird ID app. We will have some binoculars available to borrow, but please bring your own if you have them!

We will cover 1 mile of trail during this event, the max grade of which is 2%. The trailhead parking lot is reserved for accessible parking, additional parking will be available alongside Simonelli Road. An accessible portable restroom will be available for use in the preserve parking lot.

This event will happen outside. In the case of severe or dangerous weather, the event may be postponed or cancelled. Registrants will be notified of any changes via email.

Space is limited, so please register to attend!
