Beaver Ponds Park, New Haven – Craig Repasz

April 28, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 11:00 am

Beaver Ponds Park is one of the many Urban Oasis sites in New Haven. Friends of Beaver Park and the other Urban Oasis partners have maintained an area of rich plantings to offer the birds a food oasis. The park itself is excellent habitat, offering fresh water wetlands, forests, and fields. We can hope for Wood Duck, Ring-necked Duck, Common Merganser, and a variety of sparrows and warblers. In the shadow of West Rock Ridge, Raven and Peregrine are also possible. NOTE: In addition to the spring migration bird walk, the NHBC Conservation Committee will join the prime movers of the restoration and on-going development of Beaver Ponds Park for planting of new hardy plants on the site. Information on the harmful effects of invasive species as well as the benefits of their bird-supporting alternatives will be discussed.  Co-leaders for the planting are Nan Bartow (nanbartow@sbcglobal.net) and Bill Bidwell, joined by summer interns from the Urban Resources Initiative and other Friends of Beaver Ponds Park.

Meet at the public parking lot on Munson Street across from Hillhouse High School, New Haven.
