Valley Talks-Fall Feathered Friends in the Wissahickon w/ Ruth Pfeffer

September 20, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Register Today

Brilliant foliage is not the only reason visitors flock to the Wissahickon in the fall. Many species of birds reside, nest, or migrate through this Audubon Important Bird Area at this time of year. Join bird expert and photographer Ruth Pfeffer for a slide presentation highlighting our fall avian friends. Pfeffer, owner of Birding with Ruth, is credited with creating the birding program at the Morris Arboretum where she is an instructor. She has led birding expeditions throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and abroad since the 1990s, contributed to the Breeding Bird Atlas project in the 1980s, and is a member of the Delaware Valley Ornithological Club, The Academy of Natural Sciences, and Wyncote’s Audubon Society board for membership.

Ruth Pfeffer will lead a hike that compliments this presentation on Saturday, September 24. Binoculars and field guides will be available. Meet at 8 am at the concrete picnic tables at Bells Mill Rd. and Forbidden Drive. Registration for this hike is required as space is limited.

Valley talks are sponsored by the Valley Green Bank
