Fall Migrants in Hillside Woods with Julien Amsellem

Sundays, September 12th and 19th, 9:30am

Watch fall unfold as new waves of migrants continue to make their way south. Each week may bring new species. Note, walks are sometimes more than an hour; stay longer if you can. $10pp each session (do one or both!).

Meet at the Vernal Pond trail in the Hillside Elementary School parking lot, just in from the school gates at Lefurgy Ave.

We will be scheduling more walks soon. Got an idea for a walk? Let us know!

Max 10pp per walk. Masks recommended.

Seeking a volunteer to administer this project: liaise and confirm walkers and walk leaders, schedule walks, and update this webpage and calendar. Interested? Email us!
