About this event

Join us on this peaceful Sunday walk, 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.

This experience is for all levels of birding. 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.
