Winter in the Sanctuary



Winter is a quiet time in the Sanctuary, though many birds can be seen and heard, including Great-horned Owls, woodpeckers (Pileated, Downy, Hairy), Chickadees, Nuthatches, Turkeys, Cardinals, and more.

Join Friends of Roberts for a Special Event!

Friends of Roberts will celebrate Dr. Roberts' birthday (February 16, 1858) with a Valentine's Day event. Munch on cookies and sip hot cocoa while strolling through the Sanctuary to appreciate the beauty of this rare undeveloped natural area preserved for birds and other wildlife. Walk and listen for the calls of owls!

This free event is for singles, couples and families who want to celebrate their love of birds and Nature. Be prepared for winter trail conditions--wear boots and bring a flashlight! Please also bring your own cup for the hot cocoa.
