Nature photographer and writer to lead bird walk at Franklin Point State Park

Dotty Holcomb Doherty, writer and nature photographer whose articles on birding and farming have appeared in the Bay Weekly and What’s Up? Annapolis and Eastern Shore, will lead a bird walk with the West and Rhode Riverkeeper at Franklin Point State Park on Saturday, December 30, from 8 to 10 a.m.

The park trail runs about a mile and a half along the edge of a salt marsh, through meadows and pine forest, each area providing habitat for a variety of species, from song birds to geese and swans and even American Bald Eagles.

The program is free, but the group size is limited, so reservations are suggested. Reservations can be made by emailing Riverkeeper Jeff Holland at jeff@westrhoderiverkeeper.org or by calling 443-758-7797.

 The entrance to Franklin Point State Park is located at the end of Dent Road off of Shady Side Road. The park is open year-round from dawn to dusk.
