Spring Birding Walk

Sunday, May 7, 2017 from 8:00 to 10:30 a.m. in Groton, MA

Early May heralds the beginning of the ‘high season’ of spring migration, when many species of neo-tropical migrant birds including warblers, vireos, orioles, flycatchers, swallows and others start to arrive in Massachusetts.  To see some of these migrants and learn more about birds of our region, the public is invited to join Mark Archambault of the Nashua River Watershed Association for a free “Spring Birding Walk” in Groton  After meeting at the NRWA’s River Resource Center at 592 Main Street (Rt. 119) in Groton, MA at 8:00 a.m., participants will bird one or more locations in Groton, including Surrenden Farm/General Fields and either the Nashua River Rail Trail or Groton Woods. Please bring binoculars, a field guide, drinks and snacks for a few hours, and dress appropriately for a field walk including sturdy shoes and mosquito/tick bite protection. Children over 10 are welcome accompanied by an adult. For the comfort of all, no dogs are allowed. This program is free and open to the public; pre-registration is appreciated for planning purposes, but is not required.  For more information, please contact Mark Archambault, NRWA Smart Growth Circuit Rider, at (978) 448-0299, or This email address is being protected from spambots.
