In August of 2013, we installed an observation bird blind on the Marshall Bridge Preserve, overlooking a prime bird and wildlife-watching location along the Red Clay Creek and designed to blend in with the surrounding area. Visitors are able to view birds and wildlife behaving naturally, undisturbed by human presence. Not only does the blind give visitors the chance to see easily disturbed bird species, they also benefit the bird populations, as they concentrate bird watching activity to concealed locations.
Thanks to a donation from a local foundation this fall, we were able to purchase a high-quality Swarovski spotting scope for use during programs at the bird blind, as well as programming at other locations. TLC members may rent out both the scope and bird blind for a day of wildlife observation. For more information on renting the bird blind, contact Mary Armstrong at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-347-0347 ext 101.
