West Laurel Hill Cemetery
225 Belmont Avenue, Phila

Event Type

Join the DVOC and Laurel Hill Cemetery for two competing bird walks at Laurel Hill Cemetery (east side; Philly) and West Laurel Hill Cemetery (west; Montco) for the Great Backyard Bird Count. Both walks will start at 9 am and we’ll compare lists at the end to see which side got more species of birds. The walks are fairly easy and you’ll be treated to gorgeous views of the Schuylkill River.

We will depart from the CONSERVATORY at Laurel Hill West (not the first building you see when you enter from Belmont Ave.). Laurel Hill West Cemetery is located at 225 Belmont Avenue, Bala Cynwyd PA 19004 (GPS directions: 340 Belmont Avenue). When you enter the cemetery through the main gates off of Belmont Avenue, you will pass the Funeral Home on your left and see white dashed lines. Follow the white dashed lines through the cemetery to the Conservatory.
NOTE FOR UBER/LYFT RIDERS: Have your driver go into the cemetery following the above directions — otherwise, you will have a 5 – 10-minute walk to the event location.
