John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary


Birds were the first love of literary naturalist John Burroughs. Then as now, the land surrounding his cabin Slabsides was abundant with birdlife.  At this time of year, migrating songbirds and raptors on route to wintering grounds in South America are stopping off at the Nature Sanctuary. Discover the richness of tree-top birdlife through sight and song with Mark DeDea, president of our sister organization the John Burroughs Natural History Society, and learn how birds time their departures.
