A bird walk and program led by N.C. Audobon’s Curtis Smalling and international birding enthusiast Romney Bathurst will be held in Lonesome Valley in Cashiers May 12.
The event is sponsored by the Highlands Plateau Audubon Society. Participants will look especially for migratory warblers. Interested birders will carpool from The Bascom parking lot in Highlands at 7:30 a.m. Cashiers and Sapphire Valley residents are encouraged to carpool from the area just behind Wendy’s restaurant, or go directly to Lonesome Valley. The walk, which will take approximately three-and-a-half hours, will begin at 8 a.m.
At 4 p.m., Smalling will present a program at The Bascom, “The Birds of the Highlands Plateau: Amazing Stories from a Remarkable Place.” The program is free.
