Tour Description

The bird watching (or birding) community in Philly is only getting bigger and I would love for this experience to serve as your introduction to it! I hope you can join me in this unique and authentic Philadelphian experience as a beginning birder! You'll enjoy my playful banter and family friendly approach to pointing out small, rapidly moving evolved reptiles in trees and calling out weird sounding names like Red-Bellied Woodpecker, Tufted Titmouse, and Grey Catbird with an energizing exuberance that will make you only want to bird even more! The Boxer's Trail located in East Fairmount Park. This popular but quiet trail earned it's name from the familiarity it had from local boxers, including Hall of Fame boxer, Smokin' Joe Frazier. The entrance to the park is accessible from historic Strawberry Mansion, a neighborhood in North Philadelphia. From Boxer's trail we will have a good look at the Schuylkill River as well some of the historic mansions hidden in the park.

About Your Local Guide

Environmental education was first job when I was a teenager. This experience taught me the vital connection between community health and environmental health. Since, I have developed a strong passion for sharing my affinity with nature and the outdoors. We can joke together, lecture together, and learn together.
