Event has passed

CAMDEN — Merryspring Nature Center will host a free backyard birdwatching walk for families and children on Friday, July 10, at 10 a.m.

Birds are everywhere – if you know where to look and listen! This outdoor walk will introduce kids to a host of common and easy to identify birds by sight and call. A small number of children’s binoculars will be available to use.

To keep groups small during pandemic conditions, Free Family Fridays have limited space available and guests must pre-register for this program. Families can sign up by contacting Merryspring at or 207-236-2239.

This program is outdoors. Families must wear face masks and adhere to safe social distancing guidelines. In the event of rain this program will be canceled. Guests should bring water bottles and be prepared to be outside for up to one hour.

Free Family Fridays are part of the Free Family Programs series at Merryspring, and will take place weekly at 10 a.m. between July 3 and August 21.

Merryspring is your community nature center offering walking trails, cultivated gardens, wildlife, and ecology and horticulture educational programs all year round. The park is located at the end of Conway Road, just off of Route 1 in Camden behind Hannaford Shopping Plaza. For more information on this program, please contact or call 207-236-2239.
