On Wednesday, September 27th, from 12 PM to 3 PM, the Franklin Land Trust will be hosting an informal hawk watch event, as we welcome the arrival of fall and see the birds off on their migration South.
The group will be led by Alex Wahlstrom, our Land Steward. While Alex may not be a professional ornithologist, he is a passionate birdwatcher and encourages everyone to bring along their birding guides and binoculars so we can all learn together.
Apex Orchards, nestled above the river valley, boasts breathtaking vistas and offers an excellent vantage point for spotting soaring birds. The Farm Store will be open for snacks, and attendees are encouraged to come and go as they please.
This event holds special significance for us, as Apex Orchards was placed into a state Agricultural Preservation Restriction (APR) in 2002, thanks in part to the efforts of the Franklin Land Trust. It’s a chance not only to connect with nature but also to meet other local bird enthusiasts.
In case of inclement weather, our rain date is October 4th, just one week later.
