Bird lovers, polish your binoculars, strengthen your neck muscles, dust off your Audubon guides and open your bird apps: the Mahoosuc Land Trust invites you to a bird walk on Saturday, May 24 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the Maggie Ring Nature Park in Greenwood. We hope to see and hear a wide variety of warblers and other song birds. Dress for weather, bugs, walking and wet footing. Morning refreshments will be available. Your guides will be Emily Ecker and Mary VanNest, who joins us from Western Foothills Land Trust.
Meet at the Trailhead: from Locke’s Mills, take Howe Hill Road off Route 26. After 0.1 mile, turn left onto Greenwood Road. The Parking lot will be on the right in 1.4 miles. From the south, turn onto Greenwood Road from Route 219 in West Paris. Continue for 5.7 miles and watch for the parking lot on the left.
Please watch the weather that morning: the walk will go on if the weather is misty, but will not happen in steady rain.
