They have opened a new section of this greenway which hasn’t really been explored yet. There is a small wet area and lots of trees. Come see what we might unearth. We will meet at 8:30 AM in the parking lot of the Town Center Shopping Center in the corner closest to the traffic light.

We haven’t birded this park/greenway in a while due to the construction at the park. Early migrants should be arriving and the beaver pond can produce some surprises. Meet at 8:30 AM in the parking lot on Monroe Rd.
