May Day Bird Walk at Morven
Sunday, May 1, 2022 at 10:30 am - 11:30 am$10
join New Jersey Audubon’s Kristin Hock for a May Day Bird Walk. Kristin will take us all around Morven’s gardens, including the parking lot and fringe areas, in search of birds and bird families, as well as other forms of wildlife. Kristin will identify the common birds and butterflies as they visit us and share interesting facts about them along this garden tour. Tickets are $10 General Admission and $5 for Morven Members.
Kristin will discuss the lore and habits of New Jersey birds and also share how to register your own outdoor space as a Certified Wildlife Habitat. Learn all about offering food, water, cover and places to raise young birds.
You’ll leave this garden tour with some new found knowledge and motivation to invite more wildlife to visit your garden! Please dress and prepare for walking and for the weather: comfortable shoes, hat, water, etc. and bring your binoculars if you have them – it is not required, but helpful.
Did you know that May Day has its roots in astronomy? It’s the halfway point between the spring equinox and the summer solstice! After your bird walk you may want to visit the museum for some scientific exploration in Morven’s latest exhibition Ma Bell: The Mother of Invention in New Jersey.
