Welcome to Sunday in the Parks! The last Sunday of the month we venture to one of Tucson’s many urban parks to hone our birding skills in a fun and joyful manner. This month we visit Gene C. Reid Park.
When you combine two ponds, large trees, a rose garden, baseball fields and native flora you are in for a great day of birding. Come join fellow birders as we explore this premier central hotspot known for a wide variety of birds year-round. This park sports a list of nearly 250 species, so you just might find your next favorite bird.
The pace will be relaxed with seating available for breaks or during mini bird sit moments. Whether this is your first time or you’ve been birding for years, there is always something new to experience. Open to all levels. Plan to wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring your binoculars, water and snacks as needed. Meet in the south parking lot which is accessed from 22nd street. Limit 12 participants.
