Bird Migration Hike at Mill Pond Preserve

at Mill Pond Preserve

At 8 AM on Saturday, October 9, join naturalist Paul Miller for a walk at Charlestown Land Trust's Mill Pond Preserve to look for migrating birds. Late September/early October is the height of the annual fall migration in southern New England. We'll explore the diverse habitats at this wonderful conservation property to see as many bird species as we can. Migration is hit or miss, so we will either have a slow morning with some local resident birds, or we could experience a busy morning with lots of migrants that arrived the night before who will be busy feeding to refuel for the next part of their journey south for the winter. Let's find out, see you there!

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Angela Brunetti at as space is limited.

This walk is part of the Land Trust Days sponsored by the RI Land Trust Council. Mill Pond Preserve is located on Route 2 (Charlestown, RI), just north of the Route 1 intersection. Going north it is the first driveway on the right after the entrance to Simple Pleasures. Look for signs. Visitors should wear sturdy shoes and are encouraged to bring binoculars.
