NJ AUDUBON BIRDING FIELD TRIP- Essex County Hatfield Swamp

May 25, 2023 - May 25, 2023

Led by Dave Hall, Associate Naturalist
Field trips are designed for ages 12 and up. Have you ever wanted to “bird watch” but
didn’t know where to begin? Would you like to find some of the hidden gems in Essex County?
Let New Jersey Audubon be your guide. Spring field trips offer the opportunity to see species
of birds that are passing through New Jersey on their way to breeding territories farther
north and other migrants that are returning to the state to nest. The trips also offer a chance to learn the territorial songs and behavior of birds that are residents all year long. This is a wonderful time of year to
visit the Essex County Parks System. Registrants will receive a confirmation call/e-mail in the event of a
cancellation. Pre-registration is required. Payment may be made via credit card. Walk-ins are not permitted. To
register, please call 908-396-6386 or visit https://njaudubon.org/calendar/urban-oasis/
