The Avalonia Land Conservancy’s TriTown Ridgeline Forest Preserve is a 500-plus-acre treasure trove of natural and human history, and the rugged woodland is at its most enticing in the late spring, when the abundant wildflowers, ferns, and mosses are opening, and migrating and resident birds are wearing their courtship best and singing their hearts out. We’ll walk slowly and deliberately to take in the flora and fauna, and we’ll spend our time learning how to identify what we encounter. Of special interest: our veteran American Sign Language interpreter Joy Valenti and naturalist Bruce Fellman will use techniques to make birdsong accessible to all, including members of the hard-of-hearing/deaf community, by converting sounds into pictures called sonograms.
