For questions, please contact Marcia Mandel at marciamandel1@gmail.com. Thanks!

Birding 101/Bioblitz - registration below. PARTICIPATION WILL BE LIMITED TO 20 PEOPLE. We will begin at 9 a.m. with a brief introduction to birding, the use of binoculars, and using iNaturalist and eBird apps to collect data for the Bioblitz. We will then spend time looking for birds at the park, with support from the outing leaders. The pace will be slow to give us time to focus on the birds. The beginning of the outing will take place on the sidewalks at the park, and there are a couple of handicapped parking spaces in the parking lot. We will likely also bird in the field across Alston Ave. from the main park area. The field is relatively flat but there are no sidewalks. There are accessible bathrooms at the park. Participants are welcome to leave at any point. This activity is appropriate for people aged 16 and older, or younger teenagers accompanied by an adult. All participants must wear masks.

Children’s Activities - no registration required. We will have a table set up at the park with games and materials that caregivers can engage in with their children, with NHAS members available to answer questions. Participants are welcome to come any time from 9 – 11 a.m. Some of the activities include coloring, matching games, and playing with bird masks. This activity is appropriate for children ages 3-11 accompanied by a caregiver. Hosts will wear masks; participants should wear masks at the table but will be able to take some materials to other areas of the park.
