Thanksgiving Weekend Hours


A visit to TTP is a great way to spend time with family over the long weekend! This time of year is ideal for bird watching. With fall migration well underway, you're sure to see a variety of bird species - from the smallest warblers to the largest raptors. For the butterfly enthusiast in the group, lingering Monarchs can still be spotted throughout. Explore the park on your own or join the Sunday Morning Bird Walk for an intimate guided tour of the best birding spots at the park. So pack a lunch, bring your binoculars and get outside!

Don't forget that the Tommy Thompson Park Bird Research Station is open to visitors every morning this weekend. If you're lucky, you may get a close look of the bird banding effort happening at the station. Bird banding is part of our Migratory Monitoring Program, which is sustained by a committed team of volunteers and generous donations from members of the public.

Happy birding!
