From a press release:

Nature lovers in Northeastern Pennsylvania should remember to look up when they head outdoors, especially when visiting the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail.

There are so many interesting varieties of birds to see during fall migration, and those who embark
on a Guided Bird Walk hosted by Lackawanna Heritage Valley and the Northeast Pennsylvania Audubon Society on Saturday, Sept. 13 at 9 a.m. may catch a glimpse of birds not commonly seen in this region.

The walk will be held along the Mid Valley section of trail, and participants may notice the Cape May Warbler, Wilson’s Warbler, and the Bay-breasted Warbler, just to name a few.

LHV Director of Community Outreach Owen Worozbyt and NEPAS President Chris Fischer will lead the walk for birders of all ages and experience levels. This section of trail is flat and mostly paved, and the walk will cover no more than one mile. Binoculars and a field guide are recommended.

Participants should meet at the Laurel Street Trailhead (at the southern end of Laurel Street) in Archbald. Parking is available, and there is no admission charge to participate. For directions and more information, visit,, or call 570.963.6730, extension 8200.

Birdwatching is a great way to commune with nature, exercise, enjoy fresh air and sunshine, and
meet new friends. Those who enjoy the September Guided Bird Walk may also want to explore the
resources for birders on the Northeast Pennsylvania Audubon Society’s website. The site provides links to some of the best birding locations in Pennsylvania, and many are in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
