PVAS sponsors C&O Canal bird walk

By Staff | Oct 28, 2016

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is offering a bird walk along the C&O Canal towpath in the Williamsport Maryland area on Sunday, Nov. 13. The walk will begin at 8 a.m. Canal Visitor Center at Cushwa Basin, and it will last about three hours. It will be led by local birding expert Sandy Sagalkin.

The walk will be free and open to anyone with an interest, regardless of their birding skills. It will involve easy walking over level ground, and children and families will be welcome.

Pre-registration is encouraged but not required. Registration is available on the PVAS website at www.potomacaudubon.org.

The Canal towpath offers good birding opportunities, since it is a major stop for migrating birds.

Participants should wear sturdy footwear, dress for the prevailing weather conditions and bring along insect repellant and drinking water. Binoculars will be provided if needed.

Directions to the Williamsport Canal Visitor Center can be found on the Canal website at www.nps.gov/choh/planyourvisit/williamsportvisitorcenter.htm.

The walk may be canceled or postponed if weather conditions are poor.
