Outdoor walk to feature peregrines, architecture
You can try to catch a glimpse of the downtown peregrine falcon pair by taking part in “Peregrines and Pediments,” a walk sponsored by Broad Meadow Brook Conservation Center and Wildlife Sanctuary and Preservation Worcester from 10 a.m. to noon Feb. 20. Participants will search for soaring birds and, while gazing skyward, seek out the hidden architectural details of the city. Instructors are Alexander Dunn, a natural history guide at Broad Meadow Brook, and Susan Ceccacci, architectural historian and education director at Preservation Worcester. The walk is suitable for anyone age 6 and up. It’s free to Preservation Worcester and Massachusetts Audubon Society members, $5 for adult nonmembers and $3 for nonmember children. Registration is required. Call (508) 753-6087.
