The diversity of habitats within the 1,000 acres of F.W. Kent Park hosts up to 200 bird species each year, many of which nest within the park boundaries during Iowa summers. Join us on a hike to look for and learn about some of these nesting species! Some birds we hope to see include Red-headed Woodpecker, Bell's Vireo, Wood Thrush, and more! We may even stop at the bird blind that operates year-round to see what's visiting the feeders. We hope you can join us for this fun event!
This trip is free but advanced registration is required. We welcome kids of all ages and their families and no prior birding experience is necessary. We will have a limited number of binoculars available for use.
