Description: Come experience the sounds of a late winter evening during a moderate hike. Participants will listen and watch for Timberdoodles (the American Woodcock) performing their unusual courtship display shortly after sunset. This “nature show” belongs to one of the strangest members of the bird world. After watching the Timberdoodle display there will be an optional hike to look and listen for small frogs called Spring Peepers who are also beginning their noisy courtship display. The hike will be easy to moderate for approximately 3 miles on a mostly flat gravel path. Please dress for the weather.

Free. Reservations begin Feb 24 for the adult program and March 3 for the all ages program.
