Fort River Birding and Nature Trail- Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge (69 Moody Bridge Road, Hadley, MA 01035, Hadley MA)
Explore the concepts of “slow” birding, the art and science of bird observation while enjoying the diverse habitats at the refuge. We’ll watch for our resident winter birds along the forest-wetland boardwalk, ponds and adjacent grasslands. Learn how bird behavior is an important tool for identifying different species. Expect 1-2 miles of easy, flat walking and dress in layers for winter weather. Appropriate for beginning and intermediate birdwatchers. Please bring a pair of binoculars with you. The refuge has limited amount of binoculars to borrow, on a first come, first serve basis. To register, please email: Tasha_Daniels@fws.gov or call: 413-658-5403.
