Volunteer Coordinator: Jim Winn
The public is invited to join us at Hermann Park on the second Monday morning of each month. There is no charge for these bird walks and children are welcome. We meet in parking lot “D” on the south side of the Miller Outdoor Theatre stage.
From Hermann Park Drive parking lot “D” shares the entrance with parking lot “E”. From the fountain in front of Hotel ZaZa, drive around on Hermann Park Dr.(also shown as Golf Course Dr. on some maps) past the Museum of Natural Science and McGovern Centennial Gardens. The entrance to Parking Lot D will be on your right side, just before you get to the large lots in front of the main zoo entrance. The entrance will say Parking Lot “E”. Go in there. Parking Lot “D” is behind Lot “E”.

Meet count leader Jason Bonilla in the parking lot of Woodland Park. Please note that the park does not have a maintained trail system. As such, there is a lot of poison ivy that is somewhat unavoidable when walking the park and looking for birds. Additionally, there are terrain changes and unstable areas. Participants should wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. They usually meet on the fourth Saturday of the month.
In-field workshop for those who wish to lead nature walks. Conversations to help provide talking points on a wide variety of topics.
