GRASSPIPERS IN THE BLACK DIRT
September 10, 2017 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm
Meet trip leader Christine Guarino (firstname.lastname@example.org ) at the Jolly Onion parking lot (625 Glenwood Road Pine Island, NY 10969) at 7:00 a.m. The Black dirt region of Orange County is well-regarded as a fall grasspiper hotspot. We’ll explore farm fields and sod farms and if time allows visit the Wallkill River NWR for other migrant shorebirds and waders.
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.
