About this event

Join Lakewood for this Sunday morning stroll at our popular Birding at Lakewood event, as we learn more about the birds that call Lakewood home. Birding expert Amy Simso Dean will take you on a stroll through the south end of Lakewood, near Roberts Bird Sanctuary, to learn more about the different species of birds that you can see while exploring our peaceful grounds.

This walk will be a slow pace on easy to moderate terrain, but we strongly encourage proper, close-toed footwear.

All levels of birding are welcome. We will have a brief lesson at the start of the event discussing the basics of birding and talking about local birds, after this you are welcome to explore the area more independently or follow along with our guide.
