Meet in the Nesbitt Park boat launch parking lot, which can be reached by turning onto First Ave from Pierce Street in Kingston. From Wilkes-Barre, First Ave is the first right-hand turn after the Veterans Memorial Bridge (a.k.a. Pierce Street bridge; North Street bridge). From Kingston, First Ave is the last left-hand turn before the Veterans Memorial Bridge. Drive over the levee and follow the road to the parking lot near the Market Street Bridge.

With a species list totaling some 160, we never know what surprises might await us. Join us to see what birds are in the Park.
