The Tookany/Tacony – Frankford Watershed Partnership (TTF) connects our watershed residents and communities to their creeks. Through hands-on education, stewardship, restoration, and advocacy, TTF works with neighbors, volunteers, schools, municipal governments, businesses, and community members to restore our watershed, strengthen our communities, and improve the impaired waterways across our 30 square miles. TTF has Bird Guides in English and Spanish, which includes a map, a list of bird species found in and around Tacony Creek Park, courtesy of Keith Russell of Audubon Mid-Atlantic, and helpful tips for spotting and identifying birds in the park.
This field trip will take place in Tacony Creek Park. The woodlands and meadows that makeup Tacony Creek Park provide year-round habitat for over 100 species of birds and other wildlife. The 3.2 mile paved trail that runs along the creek, part of The Circuit regional trail network, provides access to the park and an opportunity for recreation, exercise and enjoyment of nature. 85 species have been recorded here during the month of October.
