Winter Bird Walk

Walk around Oakland Lake accompanied by Nancy Tognan of the Queens County Bird Club to look for ducks, coots, grebes, swans, geese and more. Oakland Lake never completely freezes due to all of the spring water that constantly feeds into it. As a result, it becomes a freshwater duck magnet when other ponds are frozen. Meet at APEC at 9:30 for a brief orientation; learn to use binoculars and a field guide. Bring binoculars if you have them. Although this walk is free, pre-registration is required as space is limited.

When: Saturday, February 25, 9:30 AM-11:30 AM

Where in Queens: Alley Pond Environmental Center, 22806 Northern Blvd, Little Neck, NY 11362

Admission: FREE
