Haywood County Recreation's newest program offers guided bird watching trips in Haywood County. Led by two local guides, Kevin Burke and Howard Browers, participants will learn about the county's native and migrating birds, how to identify their call, and, of course, view them. Birding tours are $10, paid at registration.

Join guide Kevin Burke on June 28 at Sam's Knob to look for high elevation birds. Loaner binoculars available for use.
