From bird hikes to banding sessions, bird programs are offered year-round for all ages and interest levels. Watch our public schedule for owl prowls at night and early morning bird hikes. We experience spring and fall migration through binoculars on the trail and eBird inventories.

The BIRD team, in cooperation with Warner Park staff and volunteers, is planning a great 2019 calendar full of special events and public programs.

Educational Programs

The BIRD team offers programs that highlight the diversity of habitat and therefore birds found in Warner Park, the Burch Reserve and the Hill Forest. Check out the WPNC 2019 Winter Schedule for a full list of programs.
