Beyond Birding | The Interconnectedness of Nature | Guided Walk

Trail & Ecology Speaker Series

Wednesday, June 12, 2024 - 09:30-11:00 am 

Ramapo Valley County Reservation
608 Ramapo Valley Rd
Mahwah, NJ 07430

The thrum of a ruby-throated hummingbird as it dips into a cardinal flower; the incessant song of a red-eyed vireo as it balances the boughs of an oak tree. Discover how our region’s migrating and nesting birds rely on native species like these for food, shelter, and so much more!  

Expand your trail knowledge during this informative guided walk with Mary Birrer, Teacher Naturalist at NJ Audubon’s Lorrimer Sanctuary. On this approximately 2-mile walk through varying habitats, Mary will offer her expertise through a naturalist’s lens; explaining the relationships between plant communities and the birds that rely on them and observing (and identifying!) the sights and sounds of the forest.  

Come prepared with an appetite for knowledge...and appropriate footwear!
