My reporting area includes all of Lehigh and Northampton Counties with the
northern edge of the area reaching Beltzville State Park and the southern
edge reaching Peace Valley Park in Bucks County. Updates are typically done
every Friday, more often when necessary.

There will be a field trip to Leaser Lake on October 7th. Meet at Leaser
Lake’s north boat launch, located on Ontelaunee Road at 8:00 AM. Trip
leader will Frank Dickman.

The next Audubon program will be held on October 13th at 7:00 PM at the
Wildlands Conservancy in Emmaus. Rob Aptaker will do a program called
“Native American Tales of the American People.”
