Meadowbrook Park – Race St. entrance (meet at the Meadowbrook Interpretive Center)
All ages; under 15 with adult
Treat yourself to an evening performance in the prairie as you witness the “sky dance” of the American woodcock, visible only during the first few weeks of spring. Discover why this strange bird is so remarkable. The group will begin with a short presentation inside the barn, then head down the accessible path to the prairie. Bring a pair of binoculars if you have them.
