All weekend programs take place at Leigh Farm Park in Durham except for the Owl Prowls and Bird Language, which take place at Mason Farm Reserve in Chapel Hill (Mason Farm is also accessible by entering “100 Old Mason Farm Road” in most GPS units). Enter the parking lot for Finley Golf Course Clubhouse off of Old Mason Farm Road, or Finley Golf Course Road (it’s the corner where they merge) – we will meet at the back of that parking lot and proceed into the preserve from there.
