In order to coincide with this year's Fall Festival at Bethel College, Kauffman Museum’s monthly bird walk moves to the second Saturday for October.

Participants should meet at 7:45 a.m. Oct. 14 in the museum parking lot on the Bethel campus at the corner of Main and 27th Streets in North Newton.

Birders need to be able to navigate a mile to a mile-and-a-half of mostly wood-chip trail and unpaved road. Terrain is sometimes steep.

Experienced birders Gregg Friesen and Rod Wedel will lead this month’s walk, through Chisholm Park and on Sand Creek Trail. It will take 1-1.5 hours and cover approximately 1.5 miles.

The bird walks happen the first Saturday morning of most months, and everyone is welcome.
