The Gloucester County Nature Club invites people of all ages to participate in the 16th annual Gloucester County Bird Quest Saturday, May2 from 7 a.m. to 12 noon.

You can participate by forming a team of your own, riding on buses led by bird experts or joining any or all of three guided walks led by bird experts who will help identify birds you will see or hear.

At 12:30 p.m. all participants gather at Scotland Run Park, 980 East Academy St., Clayton, NJ, 08322 to report results and for free lunch, t-shirts and prizes.

The cost to participate in Bird Quest is $12 per person. Advance registration is required. For more information, to join a team or reserve a seat on the bus, contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 856-582-7000 x110.
