In a partnership program with High Bridge Trail, the Margaret Watson Bird Club will have volunteers available for a birding adventure on High Bridge Trail. Help our local bird club conduct an informal bird survey of wild birds on our park property. Citizen science is helpful for guidance of the direction of wildlife and habitat management. We will also enhance the habitat by removing harmful debris from human activities. Dress for the weather, and wear good closed-toe walking shoes.
Participants will meet at the Charley's Parking Lot in Farmville at 8:30 a.m.
We recommend bringing binoculars, but the park has some that will be available.
We welcome all visitors to this program which will be enjoyable and informative at all knowledge and experience levels.
Cleanup will occur first. Please wear suitable and durable clothing and bring work gloves. The Rochelle Tract is a locally unique ecosystem, but it has been marred by a few private dumping sites from years past.
