Winter Birding Walk at the Nyquist Harcourt Wildlife Sanctuary - Saturday December 10 at 10:00 a.m (Rain Date: Sunday, December 11)
A walk around the Harcourt Nyquist Sanctuary is beautiful in any season and many interesting birds can be found in the winter. If there is open water, there may be waterfowl as well! We will leave options open to explore whatever critters we encounter from a respectful distance. Mud can always be an issue here so dress appropriately and bring binoculars, water and a snack. There will probably be at least a few miles of walking involved.
This program is 2-3 hours, and we will meet at the Village of New Paltz Municipal parking lot, 53 Huguenot St., New Paltz. 15 participants maximum, appropriate for children if they can use binoculars. Please note that there may be potentially muddy/snowy, bumpy ground but no steep inclines and that you should bring binoculars (optional), waterproof shoes, snacks, water. Rain date December 11th.
Chrissy Guarino has been birding for about 20 years and stumbled upon a rare Sedge Wren in the sanctuary. She is also a high school science teacher and all around nature lover who travels with her bike whenever possible.
