Chester County Parks Birding Series: #6 – Black Rock Sanctuary

August 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

For: Summer Residents

Place: 953 Black Rock Road, Phoenixville, PA 19460, 6:00 p.m.

Leader: John Mercer (484-459-2062,, Patty & John Werth (

Note: The Chester County Parks system has seven wonderful parks which provide excellent birdwatching opportunities.  Join us as we explore all seven of the parks, one per month, in 2023.
Visiting the 6th park in the series, Black Rock Sanctuary, in the evening gives us the opportunity not only to observe birds that are settling in for the night, but also to watch for those that are just getting started. For example, this is the time of the year that common nighthawks can often be seen swooping through the skies at dusk, and young eastern screech owls are learning to sing. Our partnership with Chester County Parks and Preservation allows us to be in the park beyond closing time for this field trip, much of which will take place on the paved loop trail which is fully accessible to those with mobility challenges.
This outing will cover about a mile on paved and natural surface trails and will last approximately 2 hours. A portable restroom is available on site.
