November Master Naturalist Birding Field Trip

November’s Master Naturalist field trip takes us for a bird walk at the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship (BRCES), a beautiful 900-acre preserve in northwestern Loudoun County. The property includes diverse wildlife habitats, including meadows, streams and heavily forested slopes which border the Appalachian Trail Corridor. Bring binoculars if you have them. Our trip leader will be Joe Coleman of the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy.

When: November 20th at 9 a.m. The field trip will most likely take half of the day.

RSVP: Please RSVP with me no later than November 16.

Meeting Point: We will meet at the Education Center, located just north of Neersville at 11661 Harpers Ferry Road (Rte 671) in Purcellville, Virginia. See detailed directions at www.brces.org. The BRCES is about 30 minutes from Frederick, MD.

Carpooling: Please contact me if you are interested in carpooling.

Weather Contingencies: Let’s keep each other posted as we get closer to the date. We will most likely need to reschedule if it’s a hard rain since we will see a lot fewer birds.
