This trip was previously scheduled on Saturday, August 7.
On Sunday, August 29, we hope to explore the Flat River Waterfowl Impoundment (5094 Old Oxford Road, Durham, NC 27712) from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and, time permitting and the heat situation, the Brickhouse Road Waterfowl Impoundments (5416 Brickhouse Road, Bahama, NC 27503) after 12:00 pm. These beautiful natural areas are located close together and are highly recommended by Harry LeGrand and Brian Bockhahn as some of the best sites in the Triangle for seeing butterflies.
Please bring your binoculars, camera, field guides, lunch, snacks and water. Be prepared to use the “green latrine” because these locations are out in the boondocks and bathroom facilities are not available. Masks are NOT required for this field trip and participants can decide how much “social distance” they feel comfortable with, (including at the meeting site for the Sunday field trip). Those interested in attending should contact Marti Kane and let her know that you plan on coming this event.
Everyone is being asked to meet in the parking area for the Flat River Waterfowl Impoundment at 9:00 am. The parking area is located on the Old Oxford Road between the turn off for Horton Grove NP (Jock Road) and the turn off for the Brickhouse Road Waterfowl Impoundments. The parking lot is large so it should be an adequate meeting spot. For those who use GPS, the coordinates are 36.1278, -78.832815.
Please contact Marti Kane for more details.
