Birding at Crossways Preserve and Gwynedd Preserve
Margaret Rohde
Naturalist, Wissahickon Valley Watershed Association
Keith Russell
Audubon Pennsylvania Program Manager

We will visit two nature preserves in close-by Blue Bell that are great for birding. First we will visit Crossways Preserve and meet with Wissahickon Valley Watershed Association Naturalist, Margaret Rohde, to see bird banding in action! Learn about avian conservation and research techniques, and find out what information can be collected by catching and banding wild birds. After a short drive we will visit Gwynedd Preserve, a 279-acre oasis of meadows, woodlands, and wetlands. After more than a century in agriculture, the preserve's fields are being carefully restored with native plants including warm-season grasses and native wildflowers. Keith Russell will take us on a guided bird walk through the preserve where eastern meadowlark, northern harrier, and bluebirds are some of the species that can be found. Bring your binoculars, lunch, and something to drink. Space is limited. Dress for the weather. We will leave from the Arboretum. Park in the meadow next to the entrance kiosk.
