On Saturday, August 7, we hope to explore the Flat River Waterfowl Impoundment (5094 Old Oxford Road, Durham, NC 27712), the Brickhouse Road Waterfowl Impoundments (5416 Brickhouse Road, Bahama, NC 27503) and, if time permits, the Horton Grove Nature Preserve (6026 Jock Road, Bahama, NC 27503). 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. Tentative timing for this field trip: 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Please bring your binoculars, camera, field guides, lunch, snacks and water. Be prepared to use the “green latrine” as 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 meeting site for the Saturday field trip) and let her know if you plan to attend one or both of these events
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.
