Local birders Chris Fischer (NEPAS) and Owen Worozbyt (LHVA) will lead the walk along a recently completed section of the LRH trail in the Mid Valley. The walk is open to all – young and old, regardless of birdwatching experience – and will be easy and relaxed, covering no more than a mile along the flat (and mostly paved) trail. Participants should meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Laurel Street Trailhead, located at the southern terminus of Laurel Street in Archbald (#19 on this map). Parking is available. Binoculars and a field guide are recommended.
