Join Lancaster Recreation in partnership with the AMC for a wonderful walk at Cook Conservation Area as we look for our feathered friends. The walk starts at 9 am and ends at 11 am at the trailhead off Route 70 in Lancaster, just south of Kimballs. There is a sign for the Cook Conservation Area on the road. This walk is open to anyone interested in enjoying a short walk through this beautiful natural area but is geared toward individuals interested in learning how to identify bird species. Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars but some pairs will be available to borrow. For questions contact Clayton Hobart, firstname.lastname@example.org, 978-257-2080.
