3/11 Early Entry To Crystal Springs
March 11 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Crystal Springs only opens early a couple times a month! Lets go look at ducks while its quiet.
Borrow a pair of my binoculars & join me to learn the meditative joys of bird watching.
Crystal Springs is home to 100+ species of birds, secretive otters, chunky squirrels & a beautiful rhododendron garden surrounded by a lake.
We’ll meet at the entrance of Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, where I will pay for your entrance fee.
I’ll provide you with binoculars, teach you how to use them, and we will explore a mile of paved (and compacted gravel) trails. I’ll teach you a few bird calls as well as point out the different species we see and hear, and answer any questions you have about bird watching and birds.
This tour is designed for beginners, but I welcome all levels of bird enthusiasts! Want to focus on birding by ear, bird photography? Let me know!
In our hour and half of bird watching we should see between 15 and 25 different species of birds, many plants, and possibly an otter, mink, nutria or even a squirrel.
Accessibility is my priority so please know I am willing to adapt my experience based on your level of mobility/ability.
Vaccines Mandatory, Masks optional but encouraged.
Please don’t sign up if you or someone in your house has had covid or symptoms in last 14 days.
(Pro tip: if you fog up your optics when masked try adding a piece of tape or bandage at top of your mask to avoid this!)
