Family Fun Events (hint: who doesn't love using binoculars?)
Another fun summer activity- become a birder! July 8th, 13th, and 22nd at 9am Longwood Gardens are having a "Birds of Longwood" tour. This sounds like a pretty beautiful and nature-ful way to spend your morning. Longwood gardens has several walking tours this July (and the rest of the summer). It's free with gardens admission. Don't forget your binoculars!
Taken right from their site: "Summer Birds and Herons - There should be lots of action at the Gardens now—breeders will have young to feed, and southbound migration has begun for shorebirds. We should see several species on the mudflats. In addition, Herons & Egrets will be around, having wandered from their breeding grounds."
