Carbon County Environmental Education Center has scheduled a bird watching walk at 8 a.m. Saturday, April 30. All ages and skill levels are welcome.

CCEEC volunteer Rob Bergstresser will lead the hike and will help participants identify songbirds, waterfowl and other birds by field marks and calls. Rob will also help participants learn to properly focus and use their binoculars, offer advice on the best field guides available, and suggest other birding hot spots throughout the area.

The program is free for CCEEC members and a nominal donation is requested of non-members. For more information, call (570) 645-8597. CCEEC is located at the west end of Mauch Chunk Lake Park, just outside of Jim Thorpe, along the Lentz Trail Highway.
