In cooperation with the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority (LHVA), the Northeast Pennsylvania Audubon Society (NEPAS) will host a bird walk along the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail in Archbald on Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014 starting at 9am.
Fall migration will be well underway, so we have a good chance of finding some birds not commonly seen in our area. Possibilities include Cape May Warbler, Wilson’s Warbler, Bay-breasted Warbler, and more!
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 9:00 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.
Everyone is welcome, whether you have years of experience or are just starting out!
