This walk’s location was formerly known as League Island, then became the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in 1871, and is now known as the Navy Yard.
Join us as we begin the day with some stationary river watching, then walk east along the river to explore some less birded areas of one of Philadelphia’s Top 5 eBird Hotspots.
Expect to walk about 2-3 miles along even, paved terrain, with the possibility of some unpaved, muddy areas as well. Please dress appropriately for the expected weather.
The trip leader will have one scope to share; feel free to bring your own for the river-watching portion of this walk.
We’ll meet at the end of South Broad Street (after Urban Outfitters) where you can also park (GPS: 39.887487, -75.175782).
No binoculars? No worries! Birding backpacks with binoculars and field guides are now back on loan at the following local Philly libraries: Andorra, Cobbs Creek, Cecil B. Morre, Falls of Schuylkill, Frankford, Greater Olney, Logan, Richmond, South Philly, Torresdale, and Widener.
