Leaders: Photo-naturalist Paula Sharp and Audubon expert Ryan MacLean.
Rockefeller State Park Preserve in Pleasantville, NY, is designated an Important Bird Area with 180 recorded species of bird species. The site, in conjunction with nearby Stone Barns, is the focus of a photographic exhibition on Wild Bees. Join us on a walk along the carriage roads built by John D. Rockefeller Jr., winding through wetlands, woodlands, meadows, and fields and past streams, rivers, and lakes while traversing wood and stone bridges. Photographer and bee expert Paula Sharp will help us learn the habitats and lifestyles of native pollinators, while Audubon experts scan for late spring songbirds. Ages 6 and up, free. Parking fee $6 per vehicle, so carpooling recommended or share a ride in the van.
Limited ~ 15 participants.
