Woodcock Walk - SOLD OUT

**All walks are full, online registration is closed.**


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. 


There are four Woodcock Walks that you can attend, all at Crossways Preserve. The program will be approximately 1 hour long. Sign up for the walk you would like to join through the registration link.

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.
