WALPOLE, N.H. — This fall, the Antioch Bird Club is partnering with the Cheshire County Conservation District to organize a Birds & Agriculture workshop and bird walk on October 20th from 8am-11am at Walpole Valley Farms – 663 Wentworth Rd, Walpole, NH 03608.
Participants will learn about which birds utilize different farming practices (grazing pasture, row crops, hay field, and orchards) and how and when these resources are used. October is a great time to see dozens of migratory and resident bird species, and experienced bird guides at the event will help you identify each and every one of them.
Participants should plan to have already arrived at Walpole Valley Farms by 8am sharp! Binoculars and boots are recommended, and please come dressed appropriately for the weather. (Unless we experience an extreme weather event, this event is rain or shine)
Guest are asked to please register online at https://birding-on-the-farm.
