You will come to know the qualities of a marsh, swamp, bog, and fen.  Enjoy this excellent birding opportunity. Meet at the end of 32nd St west off of D Ave.

About the Friends

The Friends of the Forest is a non-profit citizens organization dedicated to the preservation of the ACFL through education, outreach, and stewardship. We first formed in 1986 to "preserve, protect, and enjoy" our community forest. Our group was instrumental in the successful effort to halt revenue logging in the ACFL, and essential to the creation and promotion of a system to provide long term legal preservation of the forest.  We welcome all who share in our mission.
