Queer Birding at NBNC

May 23, 2023 @ 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Tuesday May 23 | 8 – 10 AM | FREE
RSVP Requested
(but drop-ins are welcome)
At North Branch Nature Center

Join us on a spring bird outing at NBNC! This outing, led by Bex Waterman (she/her) and Catherine Griset (she/her), is reserved for folks who identify as Queer and who are interested in birding with a welcoming community. We’ll spend about 2 hours in the fields and forests along the North Branch River. We’ll bird our way along the generally flat perimeter of NBNC’s trails before crossing the bridge and exploring the habitats of North Branch River Park. 

Our route travels between 1/2 and 1 mile, and will have minimal elevation gain overall, with some small ups and downs along the dirt/grass trail. There are a few benches for resting along the way through the field (none past the bridge). Restrooms are available at the Nature Center building where we will start and end our time. Please let us know ahead of the program how we can better accommodate your accessibility needs.

In addition to familiar favorites like Black-capped Chickadees, Song Sparrows, and our resident Common Ravens, we hope to observe returning Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, Broad-winged Hawks, and of course several varieties of songbirds such as Chestnut-sided Warbler, Black-throated Blue Warbler, and Indigo Bunting.

Bring your binoculars or borrow a pair from us when you arrive.

Visit our Birding Page for more NBNC birding programs this spring, including our regular May and early-June Friday morning outings.

Our Shared Commitment

Take care of yourself. Take care of others. Take care of the earth.
We strive to help people feel welcomed, oriented to the landscape, engaged, inspired, safe, and part of our community. We ask that our visitors and participants share this commitment while at North Branch Nature Center and during our programs. We expect that all who enter this shared space do so in the spirit of welcoming kindness, inclusivity, respect, and curiosity.
