Bill Williams to lead 4th Saturday Bird Walks at New Quarter Park

imageLearn more about birds during Bird Walks led by Bill Williams on fourth Saturdays from August through December, from 7 to 9 a.m. at New Quarter Park.

     Williams is a well-known birder and former educator with the Williamsburg-James City County School system who is currently director of education with the Center for Conservation Biology of the College of William and Mary.

     Williams has inspired many area residents to get excited about birds and to learn to identify them by field marks and calls. During walks he will point out osprey, heron, ducks, eagles, and hawks on Queens Creek and will help participants learn to listen for and spot songbirds in the park’s woodlands and meadows. The free walks along the park trails will intrigue young and old as they enjoy the area’s natural environment.

   New Quarter Park is located in upper York County at 1000 Lakeshead Drive, next to the Queens Lake neighborhood. For more information, call York County Parks and Recreation at 757-890-3500 or New Quarter Park at 757-890-5840
