Bird walks will take place each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. through mid-April, weather permitting. The park ranger will meet visitors at the picnic area and help identify birds around the site, while interpreting different species and their roles in the local environment.
There is no entry fee at the Montezuma Well location, and the program is free. Participants should bring water and binoculars, if they have them, and wear clothing and footwear appropriate for an easy to moderate hike. Programs last approximately two hours.
