Fourth Fridays for Families: Terrific Turkey Trek with Pam Newitt (Nov. 18)

Start
Friday, November 18 10:30 am
End
Friday, November 18 12:00 pm

Free

Join volunteer naturalist Pam Newitt for a fun-filled morning about one of our country’s most iconic birds. Native to Pennsylvania, the Eastern wild turkey almost disappeared from our forests completely before conservation efforts brought them back from the brink. We will discuss their interesting lives, read a story and then go on a turkey “hunt” through the Preserve. After our walk, we will return to the Visitor Center for a special project to take home. This program is for children ages 3 to 6 with an accompanying adult.

Pam Newitt has a B.S. in wildlife conservation from the University of Maryland. She has been a professional interpretive naturalist since 1989. She is a member of the Preserve’s board of trustees and chair of the education committee, positions she has held almost continuously since 2004. She loves walking woodland trails, looking up for birds and down at wildflowers.
