Join teacher-naturalist Carol Kratzman for a small group program exploring what’s happening on Milford Point through the fall. We’ll start at benches adjacent to the Pollinator Garden and bird feeders, then stroll to the observation platform overlooking Long Island Sound. Learn about the plants, birds and wildlife of the area including the many ways plants and animals are connected. Get tips on basic bird and plant identification and binocular use. This program includes limited walking over mostly level surfaces. Benches at the garden and observation platform will provide seating during this program.
