On April 21, we held our second joint bird walk with Outdoor Afro-Connecticut at Westmoor Park in West Hartford. It was wonderful to see new faces joining our experienced birders, all eager to explore and learn about the feathered residents of the park.

These bird walks are more than just spotting Kingfishers and Kinglets. They are a cornerstone of our community conservation efforts. They provide a chance to connect with the tranquility and awe of nature in unexpected ways. They are also a way to ignite the passion of new environmentalists and conservationists.

Bird & Hike fosters a welcoming environment in which participants feel comfortable exploring the wonders of the natural world in their own way. We are excited to continue engaging with community groups and land trusts across the state to usher forth a new generation of conservation leaders who reflect the rich diversity of our communities.

If your land trust is interested in Bird & Hike, get in touch with us. We’d love to work with you.
