ELECTION DAY SPARROWS AT THE “REC CENTER”
November 5 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Fulfill your civic duty and join JBNHS at this sparrow hotspot. This Scenic Hudson property in the Town of Ulster attracts migrating sparrows and has potential for other late migrants as well with stands of cedar and old ornamental plantings. The entrance (and meeting place for this walk) is across the street from houses 102 and 106 Kukuk Lane. If time allows we may visit one of the nearby river side parks to pad our trip list. Muck boots are recommended to keep feet dry from the morning dew/frost and dress in layers as temperatures could greatly change from start time to early afternoon. Contact trip leader Mark DeDea (firstname.lastname@example.org ) to sign up for this outing or with questions.
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.
