Description

Join Brian Popelier, BTC Ecologist, for a birding adventure at the Glassford Wetland to observe the early Spring arrival of some of our feathered friends.This property consists of a variety of habitats including forested areas, open meadows, hay fields and wetlands. A large pond is surrounded by well-developed open aquatic, marsh and willow-dogwood thickets which provide a diverse array of migratory and breeding birds, including waterfowl and marsh birds. At least 94 bird species have been recorded on the property. Notable species include Sandhill Crane, Sora, Osprey, Bobolink and Virginia Rail. At least 13 warbler species have been observed during spring and fall migration.

Bring a light backpack to carry your water bottle, snacks, camera and binoculars. Weather at this time of year can still be unpredictable - dress according to the weather conditions. Sturdy hiking shoes or boots and long sleeved protective clothing are recommended.

The terrain is generally flat with uneven terrain. There may be some wet areas on the trail.

No washrooms on site.
