New York City: Spring 2014 Bird Walks

Kellye Rosenheim fell in love with birding during The Nature Conservancy’s first walk more than 15 years ago. She has been leading walks herself since 2008. As birdwatchers are fond of saying, her favorite bird is the one she’s looking at right now.

Central Park is a birder's paradise! Join The Nature Conservancy for a free, guided bird walk. 

RSVP is required. Please note that in order to provide this opportunity to as many people as possible, we ask that members limit their attendance to two walks maximum. Please click on the date(s) below that you are interested in signing up for.

Our walks normally take two hours—but always feel free to leave early. Be sure to bring a pair of binoculars and wear comfortable shoes.

For questions about online RSVPs, or to cancel your attendance at a Birdwalk you have already registered for, please contact Kat McGlynn at kmcglynn@tnc.org or 212-997-6408.

If the weather looks iffy and you're wondering if the walk has been canceled, call the bird walk hotline (212-381-2194 ). Notices of cancellations will be given as outgoing messages by 6:30 a.m. on the morning of the walk.
