Watershed offering birding and fly-tying programs

-->

HOPE VALLEY — Local birding expert Roger Masse will lead a series of six walks in southern Rhode Island beginning Saturday to teach people about the many bird species that make their winter homes in the area.

These walks are open to anyone interested in birding, from the novice to the expert.

In the winter, the group will visit some coastal areas to see wintering ducks and sea birds. In spring, Masse will help the group look for woodcocks and early spring migrants. Most walks are on easy trails.

Registration is necessary to get information about the meeting location. Bring binoculars; field guides are optional. The fee is $5 for WPWA members and $10 for nonmembers. All of the walks are held on Saturday, from 9 a.m. to noon.

• Saturday, Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge in Middletown

• March 1, Beavertail State Park, Jamestown

• March 22, Trustom Pond National Wildlife Refuge, Charlestown

• April 12, Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge, Charlestown

• April 19, Woodcock Walk at Big River Management Area, Coventry

• May 3, Great Swamp Management Area, West Kingston. Due to turkey hunting season, hikers need to wear florescent orange.

Other events include a fly-tying class in March. Join WPWA volunteer and Trout Unlimited instructor Jay Boyer for a series of four fly-tying lessons at the WPWA campus at 203 Arcadia Road that will get you ready for fishing season. Each week, Boyer will demonstrate a different fly. Each lesson is $10 for WPWA members; $15 non-members.
