Don’t Forget: Free Walk, Sunday, DeKorte Park

Don't forget: Our first free guided walk of 2013 is Sunday, and it an awesome triple-header. 

First we'll look for duckage at DeKorte Park (and keep fingers crossed that the Shorebird Pool has some open water.

Next, we'll check out Disposal Road for raptors (above) — and hope we get a Bald Eagle or Rough-legged Hawk.

Finally, we'll walk into Harrier Meadow to see what's hanging around. 

Waterproof boots and warm clothes are advised.

You'll need to sign a liability release, good for all of 2013.
