Rockaway Bird Outing

Sunday, March 26, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
RISE, 58-03 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Far Rockaway, NY 11692

Join us for a spring birding tour, led by RISE's and NYC Plover Project's knowledgeable and experienced staff. Come see plovers, oystercatchers, terns, and more as they arrive to nest on the Rockaway shoreline. Whether you are an expert or just starting out, all levels of birders are welcome!

This event is FREE. We will meet at RISE at 11:00 a.m. to begin the tour. Please dress for the weather with warm layers and bring a water bottle. Binoculars will be provided, on a limited basis, and you are welcome to bring your own.
