The walk itself will be a flat 2-mile loop along Clear Creek Trail, with the option for bathrooms and leaving early at the halfway point. The woods and ponds along this river corridor provide excellent habitat for many species of birds, as well as rest stops for late migrants. We hope to see a variety of recently arrived waterfowl, plenty of resident birds, and some fall migrants passing through. This trip is geared towards beginner birders, but all skill levels are welcome.
Enter Prospect Park off W. 44th Ave., and continue to the last, largest parking lot at the end of the road. Bring binoculars if you have them, layers, sunscreen, and water. For more information, please call Sarah Leavesley, trip leader, at 317-809-9839. Please note that this trip is not accessible for those with mobility challenges.
