Join Jack Sanford for some great birding and fun time on his Friday bird walks this winter!

Jack Sanford

Every 2nd and 4th Friday (usually) Jack hosts a casual and fun two hour walk at one of the south coast’s birding hot spots.  For beginners, this is a great opportunity to see the birds and find out where to bird.
