Birds are everywhere!

While National Parks such as Congaree are wonderful places to see and hear birds, they don’t have a monopoly on bird life. Join Richard Joyce, Congaree National Park’s Community Volunteer Ambassador, for a leisurely bird walk around the grounds of Richland Library Ballentine. We’ll learn about resources for identifying birds, ways of supporting urban bird diversity and balance, how to use binoculars, and birding by ear. We’ll hope to see and hear woodpeckers, titmice, mockingbirds, nuthatches, sparrows, cardinals, hawks, and wrens.

Please note that this is an outdoor program.

  • In case of inclement weather, this program will be canceled. Please include your email address when you register so that we can keep you up to date!
  • Please bring weather-appropriate clothing and footwear for walking on grass and potentially uneven ground. The walk will not be long or strenuous, but it will be over unpaved surfaces.

Mask Requirements: In alignment with local ordinances and guidance from CDC and SC DHEC, masking is highly encouraged.
