GREAT VLY PADDLE
July 21, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Please register with trip leader Wendy Tocci (email@example.com ) to participate in this outing. In the late summer and into early fall this location can be very attractive to migrant shorebirds and even terns. The Vly is always a good spot to visit for breeding species loyal to marsh habitat like Gruiformes and bitterns and a quiet paddle should allow for close inspection of some of these target species. This year Peter and Amy have been gracious enough to allow us to launch from the “Fradon Marsh” boat launch located on West Camp Rd. To reach the boat launch from US 9W north of Saugerties, turn west on West Camp Road and continue approximately 1 mile. Latitude, Longitude: 42.134006, -73.942770
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.
