Start the day in the woods of the Lloyd Center, in a venture similar to the mid-winter nature walk, only this time we’ll soak in whatever the property has to offer on a crisp autumn morning. We’ll comb the landscape in search of wildlife including woodland songbirds including migrant warblers, waterfowl of the estuary, wandering raptors including perhaps an owl, and mammals such as white-tailed deer which dwell on the property.

If wildlife is in hiding, never fear, we’ll also identify trees and shrubs which may still offer some fall foliage. At the end, “Koko” the Screech Owl will be brought out to wish all a Happy Halloween!

Please be prepared in case masks and/or social distancing are still required.
