Birdwalk at Buttertubs

Join us for a bird walk around Buttertubs Marsh. We’ll be revisiting our Christmas Bird Count site, Buttertubs marsh, which will give us a chance to compare which birds have come, which have gone, and who likes to stay all year round.

Location: Meet at the Miner’s cabin parking lot off of Jingle pot Road.

If you want to do some preparation for this walk visit the Cornell Lab or Ornithology and try to learn some bird songs and calls, or teach yourself some new birds! Ebird is also a great online resource, where you can use their map to see what birds have been spotted in our area recent

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
