Let’s Go Birding!
Discover the bird habitat at Hunterdon Land Trust’s Idell Preserve on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 8 a.m.
Juanita Hummel, of the Washington Crossing Audubon Society, will lead this hour-long birding event where participants will discover migratory birds along the enhanced preserve trail, which runs through charming woodlands. She’ll stop at several habitat sites and discuss why preserving Idell was important for the local bird habitat.
The program is free, but reservations are strongly encouraged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The Idell Preserve is located at 50 Barbertown-Idell Road in Kingwood Township. The walk will begin at the kiosk near the preserve’s parking area.
Hummel, an avid birder and nature lover, currently serves on the board of the Washington Crossing Audubon Society, and volunteers with the NJ Audubon Society, the Wildlife Conservation Corps and other conservation organizations.
