Tucson Audubon Society: Introduction to Tucson Birds – Fort Lowell Park Field Trip
Registration for this trip is free. | Register Here beginning on July 9
Trip difficulty: Easy, 1-1.5 miles on level, paved surfaces, grass, and hard-packed gravel. Bathrooms and water available at the park.
This trip is intended for people new to birding or for birders from other regions. Fort Lowell Park has a variety of habitats in a compact space which makes it a great place to learn about Tucson’s urban birds. We’ll practice identifying birds by shape, sounds and colors, and by observing their behaviors, plus the plants they favor. We’ll focus more on enjoying the birds that show up rather than a long list of sightings. Participants will be introduced to some great resources for getting started with birding. Bring plenty of water, sun protection and wear sturdy shoes. Limited to 10 participants. Binoculars will be provided for those who need them. Meet in the parking lot by the old fort at 7 am. We’ll finish at about 8:30 am.
Full details will be emailed to registered participants prior to the walk.
