ACCESSIBLE BIRD OUTING

10:00-11:30 AM

Join us for a casual morning of watching, listening to, and enjoying birds! This event is designed to be intentionally inclusive and accessible for beginner birders and people who experience accessibility challenges as a result of a disability or other health concerns. With that said, all are welcome to attend.

Instead of a long hike, we will spend our time on the paved paths near the bird feeders of the Frick Environmental Center, utilizing elevators as needed to access lower levels of the building for different views of the birds.

Extra binoculars, folding chairs, coffee, and tea will be available for attendees.  For detailed accessibility information on this location, please visit the Frick Environmental Center Birdability Site Review on the Birdability Map:
