Wheelchair accessible event at Birdy Verde - Armchair Birding with Anita MacFarlane, April 26, 27, 28, 29 at 8am to 10am, Dead Horse Ranch, during the Verde Valley Birding & Nature Festival. Let the birds come to you. Bring your favorite camp chair, binoculars, a little refreshment, and just enjoy birding as the hours slip by. We will only have to walk a short distance on the Day Use Accessible Trail to a spot where feeders bring the birds up close. A knowledgeable guide will help identify species. The area is open for birding at any time but the guide will only be available during these hours. Donations to help cover feeder costs are appreciated.
