About the Event

Participants will learn how to utilize the Merlin Bird ID app which can identify which birds are around in seconds using sound recognition. Often, we can hear many different songs and calls around us, but can't always see the birds that are making these sounds. The Merlin Bird ID app is a fantastic tool that encourages people to get outside and listen to the sounds of nature, while sharpening their bird identification skills. It can be used anytime, anywhere! Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, but it is not required. 

The bird walk will take place along fairly smooth and flat trails that go through different habitat types including bottomland hardwood forest, upland prairie, wetland, and riparian habitat. 

Meet: - Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center - 3310 Collins Rd, Denton, TX 76208. Parking available outside or inside of the gated entrance on Collins Rd. 

Who: - This event is for everyone who would like to learn about birds! All ages welcome. 

Cost: - Free 

Additional Info: - Bring a a reusable water bottle, comfortable clothes and tennis shoes or hiking boots. Dress for the weather including hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, bugspray etc.

IMPORTANT: - Download the "Merlin Bird ID" app on your phone before the event to be able to use it during the bird walk. Please sign TCA's liability waiver found on our website before arriving to the event.
