Riker Hill & Becker Farm Birding Walk
January 28 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am
Explore both field and forest while enjoying beautiful vistas of the Passaic River Valley. Walk thought old farm fields to discover overwintering field birds. Hike along the ridge at Riker Hill for great views and a look at woodland birds. Meet at the Essex County Environmental Center and we will carpool to the hiking site. Led by associate naturalist Dave Hall.
Becker Farm dates back to 1880 when it was a farm. Over the years this farm added its famous railroad which entertained families for over 30 years. The now abandoned farm is a great place to spot grassland birds.
