Birding the Gateway to Hancock
Saturday, May 19, 2018,
7:15 am to 11:00 am
In December of 2017, thanks to generous donations from neighbors and beyond, the Harris Center purchased a conservation easement on land between Forest Road (Route 123) and Old Hancock Road, next to the already-conserved Valley Farm in Hancock. The diverse habitat along Old Hancock Road, including alder swamp, wet meadow, and rich hardwood forest, supports a diversity of bird species, including vireos, warblers, orioles, and bobolinks. Join Francie Von Mertens and Meade Cadot for a morning of birding at this new property, where we’re likely to encounter an array of migrant and breeding birds. Meet at 7:15 a.m. at the Hancock Town Office parking lot. Back by 11 a.m.
