About This Activity

Description

This activity has been cancelled.

Love is in the air, literally! Normally well camouflaged, the American Woodcock is a strange-looking bird that is rarely spotted except for this time of year. In early February, the males put on an amazing aerial mating display just as the sun goes down. Join McDowell Nature Center staff for a rare glimpse at this elusive creature. No walk-ins accepted. Pre-registration required (for adult and child alike).


This hike qualifies for our 100 mile hike club. Come prepared to hike approximately 1.5-2.5 miles on uneven terrain. Please wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Please bring your own water bottle. An email will be sent out prior to the program with more detailed information.

Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation follows all CDC guidelines and Governor’s orders. Participants are expected to wear a mask indoors at all times and outdoors if social distancing guidelines cannot be met. Participants may be less than 6’ apart during an outdoor program. At that time, we will ask everyone to wear a mask. If you cannot, you will be asked to stand more than 6’ away.
