dottyBird Walk at Franklin Point State Park

Saturday, Dec. 30, 2017

8 - 10 a.m.


Join the West & Rhode Riverkeeper this Saturday at Franklin Point State Park for a bird walk with nature photographer and writer Dotty Holcomb Doherty (left). You might have read Dotty's articles on birding and farming in the Bay Weekly and What's Up? Annapolis and Eastern Shore. Dotty will lead a bird walk with the 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.
