Hilltop Lake Park (Richmond)
January 12 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Join me for an easy, flat 0.75 mile stroll around Hilltop Lake in Richmond to look at ducks, woodpeckers, passerines, and maybe raptors and a wader or two. Freshwater pond surrounded by willows, cattails, and native and ornamental trees and shrubs.
