|where||Veterans Oasis Park, Chandler|
Time to slow down and smell the roses; er, look for the birds. We will be joined by a
birding guide from the Desert Rivers Audubon Society, to enjoy a guided nature walk
and learn about various birds.
Veterans Oasis Park is comprised of 113 acres, 78 of which are designed for
groundwater recharge and wetlands, and serve as habitat for diverse Sonoran Desert
plants and wildlife, and has numerous walking trails. There is also a 5 acre fishing lake.
Veterans Oasis Park is considered one of the premier birding spots in the valley, with recharge basins, riparian environments, and an abundance of native vegetation, and draws a variety of migratory and local birds to the park. Over 153 species have been documented at the park. A free birding checklist can be picked up inside the Environmental Education Center before the hike begins, if you wish to keep track of what you spot.
Masks will be worn during this entire walk as we will practice social distancing and hear our guide. Limit of 10 participants.
It is best if you can bring your own binoculars, but loaners will be available from our guide, for anyone who needs them.
This is a great opportunity to bring your cameras as well.
No shade, so bring a good hat, too.
