More about the event:

“This is an inclusive event for all ages, abilities, and identities, with birding opportunities for all. We will have some pairs of binoculars to loan and spotting scopes set up to observe birds in different habitats throughout the farm, from both easily accessible locations and further afield.”

Schedule of Events:

  • 10:00AM: Get to know your N. Coast Birds – Bird walk and talk with expert local birding guides

  • Throughout the Day: ‘BIG SIT’ – Bring something comfy to sit on (or pull up some grass) and join one of our three ‘Big Sit’ stations, where seasoned birders will help point out species by sight and sound and will keep a running tally of birds throughout the day. Participants may arrive and join for any portion of time between 10 am and 2 pm. Spotting scopes will be available to help locate and observe migratory and resident species.

This free event is open to all. Please RSVP here to help LNCT plan for the day.
