A bird-watching event is planned on Saturday, June 4 at Beaverdam Park in Gloucester to celebrate the third Black Birders Week.
A release said the walk will start at 8 a.m. and last until about 10:30. Leading the event will be Susan Crockett of the Gloucester NAACP and a Master Naturalist, and Gee Brownley of the Middle Peninsula Bird Club.
Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP to email@example.com by June 1. Those taking part should wear comfortable walking shoes and bring binoculars.
The release said, “Black Birders Week is in its third year. It began in May 2020 after Christian Cooper, an avid Black bird-watcher in Central Park, had the police called on him after asking a white woman to put her dog on a leash as required by park rules. The incident generated international headlines.”
This birding event is jointly sponsored by the Gloucester NAACP, Middle Peninsula Master Naturalist Chapter and the Middle Peninsula Bird Club.
