OWL PROWL AT GALEVILLE
February 16 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Shawangunk Grassland NWR (Galeville) is known for wintering raptors like Short-eared Owl, Rough-legged Hawk, and Northern Harrier and all should be present on our visit. Dress warmly for conditions on exposed, open habitat nearing sunset. Meet trip leader Mark DeDea (firstname.lastname@example.org or 339-1277) at the refuge parking lot east of the main entrance on Hoagerburg Rd. (Ulster County Rte. 18) at 4:00 pm. Dependent on how cooperative the birds and Mother Nature are we may walk a little or benefit from the vehicles as windbreaks.
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.
