Join naturalists Phil Brown and Susie Spikol for a birding outing at MacDowell Lake in Peterborough, where the hard-packed gravel pathway along the lake provides ample opportunity to enjoy birds of wetland and woodland alike. This event and successive Birding for All outings are designed with accessibility and inclusivity in mind, for people who experience accessibility challenges as a result of a disability or other health concern. Beginning birders welcome!

Meet at 9 a.m. at the lower parking area for Edward MacDowell Lake, off Wilder Street in Peterborough. Done by 11 a.m. Bring binoculars (or borrow a pair from us), and dress for the weather and conditions, including sun and biting insects. Limited accessible parking is located past the dam and park office, and near the beach. For more detailed accessibility information about this site, visit the Birdability Map.

Space is limited to 15 participants, and registration is required. For general information about Harris Center field trips, see our Outings Information page. For questions about this particular outing, please contact Phil.
