Free & Partner Walks

Free and Partner Walks

Discover the surprising amount of birds and nature that can be found in our city by joining us on our free and partner walks. In recent years, we have expanded our offerings of free outings, partnering with organizations such as The Battery Conservancy, Outdoor Afro, and others to provide birding tours that are more laid-back and welcoming to birders of all skill levels and experiences.

Special Notice: 

After suspending most spring and summer in-person programming in accordance with state and federal government guidance, as of early September 2020, we are offering free partner walks in select parks. See below for current offerings.
