Heckrodt Birding Club


Heckrodt Birding Club meets the first Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM at Heckrodt Wetland Reserve.  A presentation is followed by social time to meet fellow birders.  Monthly Outings are also scheduled to see birds in the field.

The HBC is open to any adult interested in birds and birding– no experience necessary.  Meetings and outings are free.  An annual membership is encouraged at $10/family to help support the cost of meetings and outings.  Choose membership options.
