May 6, 20; June 3, 17; July 8, 22; August 5, 16; September 9, 23; October 7, 21.
Nature Center volunteer and avid birder Ralph Reed will meet you at 7:45 a.m. (before regular operating hours) at the front gate, with gates closing at 7:55 a.m.
The cost is $3.00 per person — half the regular admission price; members are free.
