Sunday Morning Walks

Take a FREE guided bird hike at TTP every Sunday morning during fall migration. Search for birds along the nature trails and visit the Tommy Thompson Park Bird Research Station. Meet the guide at the TTP entrance promptly at 8 a.m. Be sure to dress for the weather, wear comfortable, waterproof footwear.

The bird banding performed at the station is part of our Migratory Monitoring Program, which is sustained by a committed team of volunteers and generous donations from members of the public. If you would like to contribute to this essential program, please click here.
