Guided Nature Walk at Walnut Creek Preserve – UPDATE

June 19 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Join Conserving Carolina for an interpretive nature walk will take place on Saturday, June 19 from 8:00-9:30 a.m. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in order to make this an enjoyable and educational experience for participants, space is limited to 15 for each session and pre-registration is required. Participants are required to keep a physical distance of 6 feet or more and wear a mask when that distance cannot be kept.

This walk will feature Mike Resch. Mike will lead participants on a moderate walk through the 2,100 acre Preserve, exploring the forest for breeding birds. Mike will walk participants through parts of the Preserve, looking and listening for birds on the property and sharing tips about how to identify birds in the field.

Mike has been a birder since getting his first pair of binoculars at 8 years of age.  Since then, he’s birded throughout the US and Canada, birding extensively in all 50 states and 10 provinces.  Mike’s state birding passion is chronicled in his blog – www.statebirding.blogspot.com  Mike formerly lived in New England where he was the Chair of the New Hampshire Rare Birds Committee.  His technical specialty as an environmental engineer is in cleaning up hazardous waste sites.  Since retiring to Hendersonville, NC Mike has enjoyed birding the many excellent birding spots in the NC mountains and the upstate of SC.  He is a co-coordinator for the western NC region of the North Carolina Bird Atlas. 

For your safety, do not attempt this activity if it is beyond your ability and experience. Participants should wear appropriate clothing and footwear and bring a mask, snack, water, and any personal medication that may be required. Be sure to bring your binoculars!

In case of inclement weather, please contact Pam Torlina by e-mail, pam@conservingcarolina.org, by 7 a.m. on the day of the walk and/or check the Conserving Carolina website or Facebook page to see if the walk will take place.
