New Signs for Birding Destination

March 2016

The Lycoming Audubon Society (LAS) and Susquehanna Greenway Partnership are proud to announce three interpretive signs have been installed on the Susquehanna River Walk in Williamsport, PA. The signs tell the stories of common bird species found along the river and raise awareness for this special natural environment.

The Susquehanna River Walk is a 4.96-mile recreation trail along the West Branch of the river is an excellent birding area with over 150 different species recorded throughout the year. 

According to LAS, numerous waterfowl are common visitors to the river in the temperate seasons and various songbirds make use of the trees and brush lining the river. Magnificent raptors such as Bald Eagle, Osprey, Peregrine Falcon, Merlin, Coopers Hawk and others travel the river corridor and perch along it, affording birders excellent views. Peregrine Falcons and Bald Eagles are known to nest locally.

Take your binoculars and hit the trail today!

The project used the Susquehanna Greenway Sign Design Guidelines available for many projects along the Susquehanna River and Greenway. SGP's Mini-Grant program is financed in part by a grant from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program, The Keystone Fund under the administration of the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation.
