Albany Rural Cemetery Bird Walk @ 7:30 AM

On Saturday April 21, the Audubon Society of the Capital Region, in collaboration with the Friends of Albany Rural Cemetery, will conduct a spring bird walk in Albany Rural Cemetery (ARC). The Cemetery covers over 467 acres of rolling hills and streams. This city of the dead is home to over 135, 000 people, including a president and many other important people. The Cemetery is located in Menands, NY.

Check-in will start at 7:15am and the walk will get underway at 7:30am begining at the chapel. In prior years, more than 30 different species of birds have been seen and heard as we walk through the Cemetery grounds. 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). Call the Cemetery Office at (518) 463-7017 to reserve a spot. A $10 donation is recommended for the bird walk to support the  Friends of Albany Rural Cemetery.
