Waterfowl observations take flight

Join us from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 14, or Saturday, Nov. 21, at PPL’s Montour Environmental Preserve to observe the winged wonders of the annual autumn waterfowl migration.

On Nov. 14, we will begin this program indoors with a brief talk and video presentation on waterfowl identification. Then we’ll bundle up and go outdoors to observe and identify water birds on the lake. On Nov. 21, we’ll start at Goose Cove Overlook. Dress for the weather and plan for some walking. Bring binoculars or a spotting scope and a field guide if you have them.

This free program will take place in the Environmental Education Center. For more information, contact the preserve at 570-437-3131 or jdbeam@pplweb.com.

PPL operates the preserve, about four miles northeast of Washingtonville, in conjunction with its Montour power plant in Derry Township.
