Birding Event on the Grounds of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Home

July 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Birding Event on the Grounds of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Home

Summer is a wonderful time to identify and learn more about local birds and on July 7 there will be an event to walk Ralph Waldo Emerson’s property to identify native birds and their habitat. The event, which starts at 8 a.m., is free and visitors will walk the grounds that Emerson, Thoreau and many others strolled, with experienced birdwatchers Pat and Tony Nastase.  Pat is the former Vice President of Valley Forge Audubon Society and is currently Chairperson of the Publications and Communications Committee.  Tony is an award-winning bird photographer.  They have been birding for over 20 years and lead bird walks throughout their local area.

Be prepared to see nesting birds as well as fledglings who recently left their nest. Children are welcome if accompanied by a parent.  Bring your binoculars and water, and wear comfortable waterproof shoes.  If you are new to birding, the leaders will help you with using your binoculars, providing fun facts about the birds we see, and providing tips to identify them.

If July 7 turns out to be rainy the event will be cancelled. Those interested should meet on the grounds of the Ralph Waldo Emerson, at 28 Cambridge Turnpike, Concord, MA. There is on-street parking available.
