Join us for an engaging stroll through the picturesque Ford House grounds, where each outing offers the chance for a unique experience to see many birds. After the walk, unwind with a cup of coffee or tea while compiling a list of the birds found.

This captivating birding expedition spans approximately one and a half to two hours, navigating both paved and unpaved paths. Dress appropriately for the weather, including comfortable waterproof shoes. Don’t worry if you don’t have binoculars – you can borrow a pair from us!

Should the weather take an unexpected turn, fear not. If the program is canceled, your tickets can be donated to Ford House Education initiatives or exchanged for another exciting program. Immerse yourself in the world of birds at Ford House – where every walk is a new adventure!
