NEW! Eventbrite pre-registration for field trips has ended and is no longer available.
We will search for Prothonotary Warblers, Yellow-throated Vireos, Cerulean Warblers, and other birds at this local natural treasure. This trip is a combination of driving and walking and includes a boardwalk, forest trail, and dirt road. Mostly flat but uneven trails. Length about 3.5 miles total, walking. Port-a-john available about midway through trip. Meet at 7:00 a.m. at the Brockport Wegmans’ parking lot (restrooms available). For those traveling from the west: meet at the Upper Stafford Marsh Overlook near 5999 Albion Road, Oakfield, NY at 7:30 a.m. It is advisable to bring water and snacks or a picnic lunch since there may be no local resources and the trip may last into the afternoon. Spotting scopes would be very useful.
