Deep Woods, Awesome Birds

Bear Creek Preserve | Fri, May 10, 2019, 9:00am - 12:00pm

Thrushes, tanagers, warblers, and many other colorful songbirds fly through our region during the peak of spring migration. In May, their songs echo sweetly through the trees, serenading preserve visitors.

Join us on this search for songbirds along the mountaintop trails of our picturesque Bear Creek Preserve.

Bear Creek Preserve is a vast expanse of forests and steep stream valleys in the Lehigh River Watershed. Larger than many state parks, the preserve is a mosaic of diverse, thriving habitats and plant communities, including several rare species. The land provides vital habitat for native wildlife, including black bear, coyote, Bald Eagle, and many species of migratory songbirds. Bear Creek Preserve is part of a larger landscape of protected lands and popular recreation areas, including state parks and gamelands, that spans more than 150,000 acres.


No experience necessary.
