Join Ryan Davis, Chesapeake Forests Program Coordinator for the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, for a spring birding trip at the Steege Hill Nature Preserve, the Land Trust’s largest conservation area. Learn birds by sight and sound, and discover what they can tell us about our land. Bring binoculars if you have them.
