West Fairmount Park Birdwatching Walk with Jason Join science educator and passionate bird watcher Jason Hall for a friendly, all-ages bird watching walk around West Park. Jason is a scientist, photographer, animal lover, and community activist who is passionate about sharing the wonders of nature here in Philadelphia with others.
NOTE NEW LOCATION: We'll meet at the front entrance to Shofuso House & Garden, and then enter the Lansdowne Glen Trail towards the Pavilion in the Trees. The walk will follow the Lansdowne Creek - a protected body of water that serves as a popular “rest stop" on the highway for the spring / early summer migration of many spectacular species. You’ll be delighted by the diversity of winged creatures hidden in plain sight in West Park!
