One of the most unique parks in the Pennsylvania state park system, the Norristown Farm Park is a working farm in continuous use since colonial times.

We will bird in a variety of habitats including woods, wetlands, agricultural fields, and the floodplain along a stream. There are historic buildings on the property, the earliest dating from 1764. One of the last undeveloped areas in Montgomery County, Norristown Farm Park is actively farmed. and a great place for birding. Bring binoculars.
