About the Event

Recommended for ages 18 and up

Description: Wait, how early are we getting up?! That is the natural first thought when going out to look and listen for migratory birds. However, these birds are most active during the dawn and pre-dawn hours. Getting up early means you get to be a part of a mysterious world that few people even know exist. During this walk, you'll look for migrants, listen to songs, and learn about what it takes to be a migratory bird. Come take a deep dive into our special spring guests. 

Materials Participants Should Bring: Walking shoes, long pants, a journal to take notes, clothes for rain or cold, water bottle, sunscreen, and binoculars. Ijams does have binoculars to borrow if you do not have your own pair, or want to try out a new pair. 

Information to Note: Participants will meet at the small parking lot at Sharp's Ridge. There are NO restrooms at the park. 

Location: This program meets at Sharp's Ridge, and directions will be provided via email before the class. 

No walk-ins will be accepted. Every participant must have a ticket. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Ijams awards full refunds for any cancellations up to 7 days before a program, or if Ijams cancels a program due to inclement weather.
