Bird walks will be held at 8:45 a.m. Saturdays, May 10, 24 and 31 at E5036 North Water Drive, Manawa.
They are being sponsored by Working Together for Waupaca County and will be held rain or shine.
Patricia Timm will lead the walk on the home farm.
The Timm farm is dedicated to grassland preservation for wildlife.
Timm has worked as an interpretative ranger seasonally for the National Park Service, BLM and USFS. She has given talks and walks about bluebirds for the Bluebird Restoration Association of Wisconsin.
The grassland has populations of Bobolinks and Eastern Meadowlarks, along with other grasslands birds.
Timm says these birds are rapidly disappearing from the landscape. The primary reasons why are loss of habitats mainly due to land practices.

Participants should bring water, binoculars and tick repellant and should wear sturdy walking shoes.
They should allow two-plus hours for the walk. There will be no bathroom facilities on the walk.
Pre-registration is not necessary.
