Be Weatherwise

Events go ahead rain or shine. Bring your binoculars, camera, good walking shoes (we are off-pavement at the BirdFest), sunscreen, water, snacks or lunch in case your bird sightings keep you out longer than expected. Also a jacket for the evening field trips, it’s cold at night near water.
