 Beech Forest Walks for May 2016 – Provincetown

It’s time for spring migration!  CCBC is offering bird walks every weekend of May!  Meet at the Beech Forest parking lot for 8AM.  From Route 6, turn north onto Race Point Road.  The parking lot is about 0.5 mile down the road on the left.  We will bird the parking lot, then stroll along the sandy loop trail around Blackwater Pond for migrating warblers and other passerines.
