Description:

Meet at 630 Davis Ave., Topsail Beach, NC (parking and bathrooms access)

Pender County Parks and Recreation, the Town of Topsail Beach and Becky Skiba from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission invite you to join us on a birding adventure along Topsail Beach. Is your New Year’s Resolution to get outside more? Discover the shorebirds that inhabit NC beaches during the Winter time, especially the gray clusters of birds that rest along the sand bars and scurry in and out of the tidal zones. Hear the stories of these amazing migrants and the challenges they face throughout their journeys. Hands-on field experience will improve your birding skills as we learn identification tricks and behavioral cues together. All levels of experience are welcome! This is a family friendly beach walk and FREE to join!

 

This workshop will be entirely outdoors, and we will still bird in a drizzle. Please wear weather appropriate attire and bring plenty of water and binoculars. If you do not have binoculars, some will be provided (limited quantity). We will be hosting monthly beach bird hikes through April so stay tuned for future hikes!

For questions or to pre-register, please email Becky at Rebecca.Skiba@ncwildlife.org.
