Summer arrived before the solstice.  It’s time to get outdoors!

Join me for a bird & nature walk in Schenley Park on Sunday, June 24, 8:30a – 10:30a.

Meet at Bartlett Shelter on Bartlett Street near Panther Hollow Road. We’ll look in the meadow for birds and flowers, then explore the woodland trails.  I’m sure we’ll see daisy fleabane. It’s blooming now.

Dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring binoculars and field guides if you have them.

Before you come, visit the Events page in case there are changes or cancellations.  The outing will be canceled if there’s lightning.

Hope to see you there!

    1. Bruce Huber, the presence of bees is highly variable because they succumb to pesticide use. John English has probably seen a lot of bees because most of the places he goes do not use many pesticides. You’ll find more bees in City of Pittsburgh parks and in low income neighborhoods because people are not farming and landscaping. Both practices usually use neonicotinoids. See this blog for reasons why landscaping contains these chemicals https://www.birdsoutsidemywindow.org/2017/08/09/deadly-gardens/
