Moonlight Walk for Woodcock

Saturday, March 11, 2017 -
6:30pm to 8:00pm
Wildlands Trust Great River Preserve, Bridgewater, MA

Join Manomet and Wildlands Trust staff in enjoying one of the first signs of spring: the epic display of the American Woodcock!

 

After a harsh winter, it is often hard to believe that spring will ever come again! Fortunately, in the northeast, our friend the American Woodcock acts as one of the first signs of warmer weather to come. Although they are actually shorebirds, Woodcocks display in damp fields in the spring before nesting in the woods. The unique springtime display of the woodcock has earned it such colorful nicknames as ‘Labrador twister’ and ‘timberdoodle’.

 

What is this display like? You’ll just have to come on our walk to find out! This family program is suitable for adults and children ages 7 and up. Dress warmly and bring your flashlight!

 

We will meet at the small parking area just before 1199 Auburn Street in Bridgewater.

 

Cost:

Adult $15.00 nonmember, $12.00 member (of either Manomet or Wildlands Trust), child $5.00

 

Space is limited, so register now to reserve your spot!
