Entrance to Black Rock Sanctuary in Phoenixville.

PHOENIXVILLE PA – Visitors to Black Rock Sanctuary can spend a day this weekend among feathered friends.

(about 1-1/2 miles north of the borough on Route 113), will be held Dec. 19 (2009; Saturday) from 8-10 a.m. Instructor Vincent Smith, a naturalist and experienced birder in Valley Forge, will lead the expedition to learn about birds that regularly inhabit Black Rock’s natural areas, as well as those who just stop-by for a winter visit.

Participants can expect to see winter sparrows, raptors, and waterfowl. The program is open to beginners. Register by calling 610-469-1916 or download the available form.
