Tucson Audubon Society: Birdability outing to Reid Park with Birdability
Part of the Southeast Arizona Birding Festival
This trip is designed to be intentionally inclusive and accessible for beginner and advanced birders who experience accessibility challenges as a result of a disability or other health concern. The three outing leaders experience their own accessibility challenges, including one who uses a manual wheelchair, and the location’s accessibility features have been documented in detail to help you decide if you’d like to attend.
Join us for a leisurely birding experience at Reid Park, near the festival hotel and expo hall. We will meet at the parking area near the Cele Peterson Rose Garden. From S Country Club Rd, enter the park at the S Concert Place entrance. Bear to the right and look for the solar panel covered shade structures. We will bird the pond, trees and grassy areas of the park, travelling on a concrete trail for about 0.75 miles.
Target birds: Vermillion Flycatcher, White-winged Dove, Black-crowned Night-heron, Ladder-backed Woodpecker, Brown-crested Flycatcher, Lucy’s Warbler, Western Tanager.
Number of attendees: Limited to 15 participants, with up to five additional attendants if you need to bring someone to help you participate.
Bathrooms: Bathrooms are available but are not wheelchair accessible.
Additional information: 12 pairs of loaner binoculars will be available. Please feel free to email email@example.com with any additional questions you may have about this event. To learn more about Birdability, please visit birdability.org
