KENNETH WILSON STATE PARK

April 30 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm

This park offers a variety of habitats and all are easily accessible, with much of the walk on pavement.  Please register with trip leader Peter Schoenberger (pdsis@yahoo.com) to enjoy the start of the progression of neotropical bird migration, and if we’re quiet, maybe a drumming grouse too!  If time allows we may travel to nearby Yankeetown Pond as well.

DOWNLOAD THE REFRIGERATOR READY FIELD TRIP LIST FOR 2022

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.

JBNHS FIELD TRIPS ARE BACK!!!
All participants should be aware of existing guidelines and new field trip protocol listed below:
