Join us for an evening walk to witness one of the most remarkable signs of spring, the display of the American Woodcock. The walk will end by (hopefully!) watching the remarkable courtship dance and song of this secretive bird.
To learn more about the display of the woodcocks, you can view this recorded program:
There are six Woodcock Walks that you can attend, all at Crossways Preserve. The program will be approximately 1 hour long.
After a short walk from the parking lot, we will be waiting in one area for the birds to display. Feel free to bring a portable chair to use while we wait. Rain or high winds will postpone until the next day. Registrants will be notified 2 hours prior to the scheduled walk if postponement is necessary.
We are happy to offer our programs at no cost to participants, but if you are able, a $10 suggested donation would be greatly appreciated. Wissahickon Trails is a local, community-supported nonprofit. Our budget depends entirely on the generosity of our supporters—individuals, foundations, and corporations. Donate online today
