CCC/WLC/JBNHS WINTER BIRD WALK AT THORN PRESERVE
February 4, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Meet trip leader Mark DeDea (email@example.com ) at 8:00 a.m. at the Thorn Preserve, a Catskill Center for Conservation property operated in partnership with the Woodstock Land Conservancy located at 55 John Joy Road in the Town of Woodstock. This small parcel has open fields and wet meadows that may attract wintering raptors, a wooded swamp with plenty of Winterberry for the Hermit Thrushes, and borders the Sawkill Creek which often holds waterfowl late into the winter.
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.
