Description:

Discover upper Rock Creek’s watershed with a variety of habitats. We will start along open fields and marshy areas next to Bowie Mill Park with the opportunity to see sparrows, hawks and early migrants. Turkeys and a woodcock have been spotted in this area. For those wanting a longer foray, a 4 mile loop which includes the stream valley will be possible and likely we will see woodpeckers and other resident woodland species. The path at this point along Rock Creek is meandering and narrow with some steep sections. Start at 7.30 a.m. at Bowie Mill Park next to Sequoyah Elementary School with the option to do the shorter paved walk or the longer loop. Limit of 12 in two groups of six each. Reservations required.
