View the spectacle of nesting herons, egrets and cormorants! Maybe even see one of our resident bald eagles. The preserve has limited access during nesting season to minimize disturbances, so the only way to view these birds during this time is to attend a viewing program. Volunteers and staff will be at the viewing platform and visitor center to answer questions. Spotting scopes will be available for use. Bringing your own binoculars or spotting scope is recommended. This is a drop-in program; come anytime between 8 a.m. and noon. Park in the Renwick Road lot, and please do not bring dogs or bicycles as they are not permitted in the nature preserve. The viewing platform is accessible via a 0.5-mile crushed limestone trail over uneven terrain.
