Shorebirding at Howe Reservoir
Sunday, August 28,
9:00 am to 12:00 pm
Join Eric Masterson for a paddle at Howe Reservoir, which has been drained to facilitate repairs to the dam. Late July marks the beginning of shorebird migration, which is usually a coastal phenomenon. Drained ponds change this calculus, however, with 18 species of shorebird reported at nearby Powdermill Pond during two recent drawdowns. If the water level is too low for boating, the trip will be offered as a 1.5-mile roundtrip hike. Bring binoculars and, if we’re boating, your own canoe or kayak, paddles, and a PFD for each person in your boat.
9 a.m. to noon at Howe Reservoir in Dublin. Exact meeting location will be provided upon registration. Space is limited, and registration is required. For general information about Harris Center field trips, including questions about accessibility, see our Outings Information page. For questions about this particular outing, please contact Eric.
