    Lansing Ave. Farm Pond Shorebird & Waterfowl Watch
    ¼ Mile South of Gateway Trail/Lansing Ave. Crossing


    When the pond holds water (as it did most of last year and likely will this spring), it's a reliable place to see shorebirds, gulls, cranes and waterfowl. Bring binoculars (and a scope if you have one) to view whatever birds are present at the pond.  If the pond is dry, we’ll walk a portion of the nearby Gateway Trail.

    Please park along Lansing Ave. north of the pond.

    Drizzle or light rain is OK, but the walks and sit will be cancelled if it’s very windy or significant precipitation is likely.
