Wildcat Ridge WMA Bird Walk

October 17 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Wildcat Ridge Wildlife Management Area is located off Green Pond Road in northern Morris County.

Led by Dave Oster, Associate Naturalist

Wildcat Ridge Wildlife Management Area, located off Green Pond Road in northern Morris County, preserves almost 6000 acres of forest and wooded ridgeline. The area is surprisingly rugged and supports populations of bear, beaver, porcupine, and bobcat. We will begin with a walk to the beaver pond to look for Yellow-rumped and Palm Warblers, Towhee, and Swainson’s Thrush. Then we’ll hike approximately 20 minutes to the ridge and should see Ravens soaring with the raptors. The trail is well maintained and there is an excellent chance of encountering Pileated Woodpecker along the way. Time permitting we’ll check out nearby beautiful Splitrock Reservoir.

COST: $10 members, $15 nonmembers.

Registration required. Walk-ins will not be permitted to participate.

Ticket sales end on 10/16/2020 at 5:00 PM.
