Join Chester birder Bill Gause on a leisurely early-morning walk to listen and look for spring migratory birds. The section of the West Morris Greenway along the Black River in Chester is one of the best habitats for hearing and seeing spring migrants such as warblers.
We’ll be meeting at ​7:00 a.m. at the terminus of the trail, at the parking area along Pleasant Hill Road. Please consider carpooling, as there are a limited number of spaces available for parking. Wear sturdy walking shoes, as the trail is uneven and can be soggy if it’s rained in previous days. Dress to protect yourself from ticks and mosquitoes. Be sure to bring a good pair of binoculars and a birding field guide. All ages and all levels welcome. Please, no dogs. The group will have best success if we walk slowly and quietly along this trail. This hike will be approximately 2 hours long.
