Get an up close look at the amazing adaptations of our local birds of prey at this live animal show. The Great Valley Nature Center, Phoenixville, will bring a variety of birds from their Bird of Prey Center. They permanently house several owls including: great horned, barn, barred, and screech. They also care for broad-winged, kestrel, and red-tailed hawks, and peregrine falcons. Join us for an in-depth exploration of these amazing creatures and their often secretive lives.

Come join the fun planting 28 new trees and 34 shrubs as part of the stream bank stabilization project in Wynnewood’s Shortridge Park. The project will be lead by Eagle Scout candidate, Max Mazo. All ages welcome for as much time as you can spare. Wear your favorite work gloves, bring a shovel and come on down! Please note the trees are quite large, ball-and-burlap stock so bring your muscles too. For pictures from the 2009 tree planting, go to http://www.lmconservancy.org/shortridge-memorial-park/.
Winter Bird Count Join experienced BirdWatch volunteers for our 19th annual winter bird count. We’ll gather at the Conservancy cottage and split into teams to count winter resident birds at Rolling Hill Park, Saunders Woods, Riverbend and Flat Rock Park. Search for woodpeckers, juncos, water birds, hawks and many more species. We’ll reconvene at the cottage to share our results over hot chocolate, coffee, and donuts. Birders of all ages and levels welcome. Meet at the Conservancy’s cottage in Rolling Hill Park. To Register for this event, click here. Or call the Conservancy at 610.645.9030
