Halloween Weekend Stroll at the Lloyd Center (October 29, 2022)

Halloween looms, but nothing to fear here, just a crisp autumn morning stroll similar to the previous event, only under likely colder temperatures and more vibrant foliage. We’ll again focus on birding when waterfowl have increased in the estuary and the feeders are becoming more active with fall/winter residents, but will take in whatever wildlife and general natural features are present on the property.

As a prelude to Halloween, get a quick morning spook from “Koko” the Screech Owl who again will be presented.

Items to bring: Hiking footwear, birding binoculars, camera


Fall Birdwalk at the Lloyd Center (October 1, 2022)

Kick off October with a bird walk at the Lloyd Center during the time of transition when fall migration is in full swing. Birds on the move and potentially seen include warblers, shorebirds, ducks, and raptors including with luck a wandering owl.

We’ll traverse the full array of habitats offered on the property, and take in other possible sightings including perhaps Monarchs, deer, or the first hint of foliage which should be visible. At the outing’s conclusion, meet “Koko” the Screech Owl who will taken out for display.
