The Pittsfield Preserve is a large natural area that was acquired by Pittsfield Township in 2002. Its 500+ acres encompass a myriad of habitats, including mature woods, tallgrass prairie, a marsh, and a variety of actively farmed fields. Not surprisingly, then, a wide range of birds have been observed here and new species continue to be added to the park’s checklist on a regular basis.
This walk is in collaboration with the Pittsfield Township Parks Department, which means pre-registration and signing a liability waiver will be required. The group will likely be limited to 15 participants – be prepared for lots of mosquitoes and wear rubber boots to handle the often very muddy trails.

Directions: Meet at the parking lot off Thomas Rd, just south of Morgan Rd.
