Throughout the year, New Hope Audubon Society hosts bird walks. These are held on Wednesdays, Saturdays, or Sundays and are listed in our website and on social media. Depending on the time of year, we meet at 7:00 or 7:30 at the walk location. Visit our calendar for details. Our walks are designed to accommodate individuals or families or small groups, and anyone from beginning birders to more advanced birders. Our bird walk leaders are experienced, knowing when and where to find the birds. And they are very good at teaching how to see them and how to learn about them. Moreover, many people find our bird walks are not only a fun and exciting time but are a wonderful social event, bringing together a diverse group with a common interest. We usually go to a local site and spend two or three hours before returning. We encourage people to bring a snack and water and to dress appropriately in long pants and sturdy shoes. The walks are weather dependent and we post on social media if possible where we are going and any constraints. The one certainty, the more often you get out to see nature, the more likely you will witness an incredible and unique sight. Come join us.
Now that the restrictions due to the COVID pandemic have eased, we are resuming our regularly scheduled bird walks. The walks will be Wednesdays and weekends, as in the past. Individual walks will be announced in the Event List on our home page, in our NHAS web site calendar, on the NHAS Meetup page, and on our NHAS Facebook page, where walk leaders will state the time and location. There will not be any reservations or sign-ups needed. If there is a large turnout for any particular walk, we may split into two groups.
Attendees already vaccinated will not need to be masked. Those unvaccinated, we ask to use a mask. We also ask that everyone use social distancing. We will meet directly at the walk site (not Eastgate or Oak Creek Village as in the past). We do recommend car pooling for families or friend pods. Walk leaders will provide directions in their announcements.
