Walk with Warblers

Saturday, May 4 | 7 - 11 a.m.

Take a walk with warblers!

Join us for a unique bird watching adventure at GCV&M’s limited-access Oatka Creek property! May is one of the best times to observe migrating warblers and many other birds since they are active and vocal preparing for their nesting season.

We will begin the hike at The Lodge (the driveway directly across the street from the Museum’s main entrance) at 7 a.m. and return around 11 a.m. 

Know before you go

  • The hike will be approximately 3 miles at a leisurely pace through diverse habitats in search of warblers and songbirds, waterfowl and raptors. 
  • Dress for the weather, wear sensible shoes, bring water, and binoculars. There are a limited number of binoculars available to borrow.
  • This outing is suitable for adults and teens.
