Fall Bird Walk! Albany Rural Cemetery

On Saturday, September 21, come join the Audubon Society of the Capital Region, the Hudson Mohawk Bird Club and the Friends of Albany Rural Cemetery, as we walk in Albany Rural Cemetery (ARC) in search for local and migratory fall birds.

This 467 acre National Historic Landmark is an exemplar of the rural or garden cemetery movement of the 1800’s with its winding roads, wooded hills and beautiful burial monuments, featuring the resting places of John Boyd Thacher (Thacher State Park) and President Chester Arthur among many other notables.

The walk will get underway at 7:30am beginning at the chapel. In addition to guided bird identification, historical narratives of some of the historic and interesting people buried in ARC will be provided as we walk through the historic grounds. Wear your walking shoes and be prepared to walk. You also may want to bring binoculars and bug spray (just in case). 

Registration is not necessary but you may call the Albany Rural Cemetery Office at 518- 463-7017 for additional information. A donations are always welcome to support the Friends of Albany Rural Cemetery.

The Albany Rural Cemetery is located at Cemetery Ave, Albany, NY 12204, however the main entrance is off of route 378 in Menands.
