Nature & Birding 101 Walks
Saturdays: October 24, November 14, December 12
9:30 – 11 a.m.
Seasonal changes abound at the Coastal Center. Join teacher-naturalist Carol Kratzman for a small group guided walk exploring what’s happening on Milford Point through the fall. We’ll visit the marsh and meander our way through the woodland before heading to the shoreline of Long Island Sound. Along the way we’ll talk 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. We will be standing and walking, often over uneven surfaces. Benches are available for seating at the garden and the Long Island Sound observation platform.
