CHECK OUT THE NEW BUCKSBLOGSPOT. HELP FOR BUCKS COUNTY BUSINESSES AND ECONOMIC RECOVERY – BUCKSBLOGSPOT

    Bucks County Audubon Society hosting outdoor (& virtual) adventures

    Bucks County Audubon Society is working to reconnect the community with nature and offering the following outdoor events and virtual series. 

    *Guided Bird Walks

    This time of year is perfect for watching the birds as they migrate! 

    Join BCAS every first and third Saturday starting November 7th from 8:00 to 9:00am for a bird walk guided by their naturalists.

    You may see many migrating songbirds, raptors, and more! 

    Recommended all participants bring a field guide, camera, or binoculars – or borrow ours.

    *Thankful in the Forest

    Did you know a forest therapy walk can increase sensory awareness in nature, and decrease stress and anxiety by wandering slowly through the trees? 

    Celebrate your thankfulness for nature on November 21st from 10:00am to 12:30pm – experience a Forest Therapy Walk guided by certified forest therapist Sharon Lohse! Participants will learn what a “sit spot” is, experience creativity when exploring nature, and engage in a tea ceremony at the end of the class. 

    Admission is $30. Please register.

    Due to COVID-19, groups are limited to five total couples or six individuals. 

    *Green Friday Family Fun Day

    Instead of shopping crowded stores in the mall on Black Friday this year, join BCAS for a #OptOustide fun family event on November 27th from 2:00 to 4:00pm to experience Green Friday Family Fun Day! 

    Explore the property and return to the nature center for a nature-themed craft! 

    Admission is free, however donations support their environmental education programs and are greatly appreciated. Please register your family online. 

    *School Holiday Camp

    Interested in an opportunity for your child to interact with other students and the outdoors this holiday? 

    Register for the School Holiday Camp for games, hikes, science experiments and crafts that tie into the day’s theme on November 25th from 9:00am until 3:00pm

    Campers should bring their own lunch and it’s required children wear masks to attend. 

    Admission is $45 for members, $60 for non-members. Please register.

    *Sustainability: Lunch and Learn Series

    Are you interested in learning ways to improve sustainability in your own life or in your community, or just want to learn more about what sustainability is?
