Birding walk set for Friday

CASSADAGA — Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy will be holding a guided birding walk on Friday from 8:30 to 10 a.m. at its Cassadaga Lakes Nature Park.

The 77-acre nature park is one of the most bird-diverse locations in Chautauqua County, with 175 different bird species identified there so far. As a result, the park was recently added by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation as a destination on its state Birding Trail. Conservancy Director of Conservation, Twan Leenders, will lead the tour and assist with bird identification as well as discuss the importance of water quality and protected lands (like CLNP) to both year-round and migrating birds. The entrance to the park is located on Route 60 in Cassadaga between Tim Horton’s and Camp Gross.

Space is limited for the walk. RSVPs are requested and can be made by calling 716-664-2166 x1001 or emailing info@chautauquawatershed.org. Please include a contact name, number of attendees, and a phone number or email. Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars and cameras and dress appropriately for typical wet conditions of a wooded wetland.

The walk is co-sponsored by the Chautauqua-Warren Birding Association.
