Winter is a good time to go birding, as without foliage on trees and shrubs, you can more easily spot birds.
The Missouri Department of Conservation will offer a free guided birding hike from 8 a.m. to noon on Thursday, Feb. 15, at Wallace State Park south of Cameron.
Adam Brandsgaard, MDC conservation educator, will lead the hike.
He will help participants spot and identify birds.
Topics such as what natural habitats birds prefer will be discussed.
Participants will need to dress for the weather.
They can leave the hike to return to their cars at any time.
This birding hike is open to participants 12 years and older.
Registration is required.
