Birding & Forestry Hike

Late summer and fall bring many changes to the natural world. Birds are beginning migration or prepping for the journey while the forest still clings to its green leaves providing cover and important food for wildlife. Join Cris Hochwender, Professor of Biology at the University of Evansville, and Steve Heeger, Board member and past President of the Evansville Audubon Society, as they lead you on a hike at Eagle Slough Natural Area to learn about the forest and the birds that depend on this habitat.

Eagle Slough Natural Area is a 127-acre forested wetland in Evansville, protected and maintained by Sycamore Land Trust. Please note that Evansville is on Central Time.

This is a level, one-mile hike free to Sycamore members (suggested donation for non-members is $5), co-sponsored by Sycamore Land Trust and Wild Birds Unlimited of Evansville. RSVPs are required at the link below.

Please note that due to construction on US 41, access to Waterworks Rd via US 41 south is closed. From Evansville, Eagle Slough can be reached via Weinbach Rd south to Waterworks Rd, then proceed west for 3/4 of a mile. The Eagle Slough parking area will be on the right. Access is also available via US 41 north – take US 41 south to the Ellis Park Main entrance, then north on US 41 to Waterworks Rd. Take a right onto Waterworks Rd and the parking area will be on your left within a quarter mile.
