This is a special outdoor nature experience to introduce the Girl Scouts and their families to the study of birds and opportunities for nature study at Aton Forest. Included will be a walk led by Ayreslea Denny around a variety of habitats important for bird species, such as an open field, mature forest, a beaver pond and marsh. Shelley Harms will demonstrate live-capture using mist nets and bird-banding. We will meet at the Aton Forest Log Cabin, 70 South Sandisfield Road, Norfolk, at 8 am. Please park on the right (south) side of the driveway. Bring a lunch and enjoy the views and nature while you eat. Contact Vanessa Millard if you are interested in attending.
