Morning Bird Walks

Registration Instructions

Pre-registration required. Submit our registration and medical forms with cash/check payment to H.C. Parks. Mail to P.O. Box 2900, Flemington, NJ 08822 or drop off at the Hunterdon County Arboretum, 1020 State Highway 31, Lebanon, NJ 08833. Children must be accompanied by an adult.


The early morning bird walks are back. Join Tom Sheppard, Chief Park Naturalist as he looks for the spring migrants and local breeding birds around the county. We will use both eyes and ears to determine which birds are around us, as well as to observe other signs of the spring season. This is a great chance to brush up on your songbird identification skills. Binoculars are available to borrow.
