Αμπελουργός- Πέτρος Τσακμάκης

The Natural History Museum of the Lesvos Petrified Forest and the Kalloni EIC in an effort to raise awareness about the Lesvos UNESCO Geopark and the Protected Natural Areas of the island, invite you to take part in our outdoor activities.

Join us on Sunday, May 15, 2022, from 10:00 to 12:00, for a guided birdwatching event around the Petrified Forest Park (before descending to Sigri) and to celebrate the World Migratory Bird Day (spring)!!

Adults and kids older than 8 years old may participate in our event, but families are welcome! No more than 15 will be allowed in a group (infants included) and it is required to register for the event. The event will last for 1,5 hours and will involve walking around the trails of the park. Please bring your own binoculars if possible, although binoculars will be available by the centre if needed.

Register for the event: +3022510-47033, +30-6972809610 or by message at our contact form.

Buy your ticket (5 euros) here or on the morning of the event at the park.

What we will do

  • I short introduction of how to use your equipment (binoculars), a spotting scope and an identification guide (book) just before we start our walk.  
  • We will take a walk along the tracks of the park and find ourselves in the heart of typical garrigue and rocky hillside of western Lesvos.
  • A small "spoiler": we will find several species of the last wild orchids of the season!

What we will need

Do not forget, our group will exceed 15 people so register soon!

Looking forward to going birding with you!

The World Migratory Bird Day is celebrated twice a year, in the first half of May and the first half of October!
