Join us to do the Duck Walk! When spring springs, thousands of water birds leave their southern homes for the breeding grounds of the north. Many stop over at Sawhill Ponds. Join naturalist Dave Sutherland for this early morning hike to spy on migrating ducks, geese and shore birds. Birders of all abilities welcome. Meet at Sawhill Ponds, 0.6 miles north of Valmont on 75th St. (Please don't go to the adjacent Walden Ponds!) Bring gloves and binoculars. Follow this link for a map to the meeting place.
