The Fenway Civic Association is welcoming spring to the Back Bay Fens with a morning of bird watching and a tree walk.

The annual bird-walk and spring blossom ramble set for Saturday, May 4, will begin at 7 a.m. with a bird walk guided by naturalist and historian Gerry Wright.

The walk, open to all levels, will begin at the central flagpole in the Fenway Victory Gardens across from 11 Park Dr. and will spot the sight and sounds of the birds in the Back Bay Fens each spring.

At 10 a.m. forester Mathew Cahill from the Boston Natural Areas Network will lead the “Spring Blossom Ramble” that will focus on the trees that bloom in spring.

The tree walk is co-sponsored by Boston Natural Areas Network and the Emerald Necklace Conservancy. Coffee and refreshments will be provided by the Whole Foods Market on Westland Avenue.
