Private Guided Bird or Nature Walks
This service is offered year-round. Each walk can be geared toward your expectations and locations. Sanctuary Manager Andy Rzeznikiewicz can take you to your next “life bird,” to local hot spots, or just use his knowledge to find birds and wildlife for you. Owl walks and private Woodcock watches are very successful in small groups. This is an excellent gift for that outdoor enthusiast who has everything. Call 860-4948.
Bird Surveys on Private or Public Property
Sanctuary Manager Andy Rzeznikiewicz is available to conduct bird population surveys on your property and can provide advise on how to best manage the property for optimum bird habitat. Private property owners, Land Trusts, municipalities or other groups interested in inventorying breeding or migratory bird populations on their properties might consider this service. Conservation groups that are evaluating potential land purchases for conservation might find this service helpful as well. The best time of year to conduct nesting bird surveys is May and June. Call early to schedule as the calendar fills up fast this time of year: 860-928-4948.
