ALBANY PINE BUSH PRESERVE/KARNER BLUE TRIP
May 27 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Meet trip leader Steve Chorvas (firstname.lastname@example.org ) at the parking lot between the Saugerties Big Lots and CVS on Rt. 212 for an 8:00 a.m. carpooling departure to visit the Albany Pine Bush Preserve. The preserve has 45 wildlife “Species of Greatest Conservation Need” of the 538 found in New York State. This includes 15 birds, 14 reptiles and amphibians, and 16 insects, as well as, two rare natural communities. It also supports more than 20 at-risk species that are either state or federally listed as rare or endangered including on the most famous residents, the endangered Karner Blue Butterfly.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
