We will show you the ropes while you enjoy the diverse bird life along our rivers—you might even see a bald eagle! We will spend the first 10 minutes of each program learning some basics about birdwatching and how to use binoculars. Bike riders should arrive a few minutes early, and be ready to ride at 3:00 p.m. to ensure timeliness. This program is free and no reservations are necessary.
