Spring is finally arriving in Glen Providence Park – soon flowers will emerge, and bird song will fill the woods! Learn to identify those birds and flowers while enjoying a morning walk through the park.  We’ll see if we can add to the 105 species on our Glen Providence Park Bird Listand see what is blooming along the way in this late-emerging Spring.

The bird walk will be led by impressively knowledgable Al Guarente of the Birding Club of Delaware County (BCDC).  Our wonderful native plant expert and garden coach Marcia Tate will also help us look for native ephemeral (short-lasting) flowers, buds, and other signs of Spring.  Appropriately enough, this falls during Transition Town Media’s Happiness Week –  what could be happier than looking for Spring birds and flowers?


  • Please note the location- we are starting at the Upper Providence entrance at Third Street and Kirk Lane.
  • Estimated distance: 1-1.5 miles
  • Estimated time: 1.5-2 hours
  • Rain or shine
  • Free!
  • Be prepared for steep hills, and uneven (possibly wet) terrain: wear your hiking shoes, and bring a hiking pole if you use one… and of course binoculars!
