Celebrate World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) by joining avid birders Nate Marchessault and Chris Liazos for an easygoing outing at the Dillant-Hopkins Airport – a local birding hotspot with great views of wetlands, woodlands, and fields. The theme of this year’s WMBD is insects’ critical role as an energy source for migrating birds, so we’ll keep our eyes out for bugs as well! Our route will take us 2.5 miles (at most) along a paved, flat public road accessible by wheelchair.

Birding for All outings are designed for people of all abilities, including those who experience accessibility challenges due to a disability or other health concern. Beginning birders welcome!

9 to 11 a.m. at the Dillant-Hopkins Airport in Swanzey. Exact meeting location will be provided upon registration. Space is limited, and registration is FULL.

For general information about Harris Center field trips, see our Outings Information page. For questions about this particular outing, including questions about accessibility, contact Nate.

In an effort to create more belonging at the Harris Center, this outing has been designed with a specific group of people in mind. Learn more about our reasoning behind this on our Affinity Groups page.

Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and the Antioch Bird Club.
