Event Details

Did you know that mental health is more correlated with bird diversity than any other group of animals? Take the time to fight the seasonal blues and learn about birding for health. While this is a birding program, the focus will be on mindfulness, relaxation, and community rather than identification. Birders of all levels of experience, ability, and fitness levels are welcome. Beginners are encouraged.

This accessible program will take place at the Red Spring Boardwalk in Calico Basin. The trail is a 0.6-mile (1 km) raised boardwalk with a total of 62 ft (19 m) of elevation gain. Water is not available at the Red Spring Boardwalk, and a reservation for the Scenic Drive is not required for entry. The Bureau of Land Management Park Ranger leading this program is not a mental health professional and will make no specific mental health recommendations.
