Spring Bird Walks

Many species of birds call the estate home, plus many others stop by our 86 acres of woods, gardens and lakefront while on their back and forth migrating between warmer climates.

Novice and experienced birdwatchers are invited to join expert bird walk leaders and spotters as they explore the grounds. 

Upcoming dates and times can be found here.
