Autumn Birds in Branch Brook Park

October 14 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
Cherry Blossom Welcome Center, Branchbrook Park
Newark,NJ07104United States
+ Google Map

This urban park serves as a "migrant trap". Join Associate Naturalist Dave Hall to explore this iconic urban park during fall migration to see warblers up close and a good variety of other songbirds and waterfowl. Branch Brook Park is distinguished by being the first county park to be opened for public use in the United States. It has been placed on both the New Jersey (1980) and National (1981) Registers of Historic Places. Named for a branch brook that flowed through the valley into the Passaic River, the stream that remains, and much of the surrounding landscape, still retain a natural appearance. More than 4,000 cherry trees that blossom during April are greater both in variety and number than the famed Washington, D.C., display—the result of a 1927 gift from Mrs. Felix Fuld family. At its height the Cherry Blossom Festival attracts over 10,000 people a day. PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED COST: $2 members, $5 nonmembers.
